Bicyclists gather for a Pomona-Claremont CicLAvia test ride!

Geico and feminine Fred Flinstone, ready to ride

This past weekend, community members gathered to ride the proposed Pomona CicLAvia route and enjoy a beautiful Sunday morning together. The ride was a success and attracted over 40 visitors, with riders coming from as far as Lynwood, Long Beach, Fontana and Redlands to attend. Riders met in Claremont near the Metrolink station, some showed up in full costume while others showed up with just one crucial element, their bikes! And of course, music too.

The CicLAvia exploratory ride took a pit stop at Martin Luther King Park, where riders were given the option to take a survey about the proposed route and enjoy some snacks. Afterwards, the ride worked it’s way back up to Claremont and ended conveniently at the Claremont Farmers Market.

If you missed it or want to complete a survey about the proposed route, you can access it here. Pomona CicLAvia organizers are in the process of compiling the results of the survey. They will incorporate the responses as they continue planning a regional CicLAvia in Pomona and CicLAvia that will serve residents of the San Gabriel Valley and San Bernardino residents as well as the larger Southern California region. Needless to say, people are pretty enthused about the idea of bring a CicLAvia to the region. One rider from the exploratory ride went as far as to compile the following video of Sunday’s ride (see below), Enjoy!
