The Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition has been busy these past few months working to bring a regional CicLAvia to Pomona. Community members and CicLAvia gurus have finalized a proposed route and we invite you to join us for an exploratory tour. We will be riding the proposed route on Sunday, October 28th. Bring your bikes and your suggestions as we brainstorm ideas for a unique twist on this L.A. tradition. PVBC welcome’s Ciclavia and we hope to see it here in the up coming year! Good luck guys!

Did we mention it will also be Halloween-themed? Don your best Halloween get-up and meet us at the Claremont Metrolink Station. Registration begins at 9am and the ride will be leaving at 10 am. For more information, refer to our official Facebook event. Hope to see you there!

What is CicLAvia?

Inspired by ciclovía, the weekly street closure event in Bogotá, Colombia, established over 30 years ago, CicLAvia consists of the temporary opening of Los Angeles streets to all Angelenos. Free to the public, it interconnects diverse portions of the city, creating a web of temporary public space, free of car traffic.

CicLAvia is not a race. There is no “start” or “finish.”  The streets operate as a platform allowing participants to enjoy the space as they see fit. With a mission to encourage safe, vibrant public spaces, sustainable transportation, and public health through a program of car-free street events, CicLAvia seeks to improve not only the communities along the route, but the entire Los Angeles region.
