CicLAvia car-free street event planned for Earth Day

CicLAvia will expand its reach to the “Heart of the Foothills” to connect four inland cities in LA County.

Perfect for the cyclist—or walker, jogger, skateboarder or scooterer—this car-free event has four hubs in San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont. Participants can start anywhere and ride at their own pace through adjacent neighborhoods.

From the old west flavor of downtown San Dimas, to the small town charm of La Verne to the Midwestern vibe of Pomona to the tree-lined streets of Claremont, discover each town in a new way or for the first time.

In addition to the car-free streets set against the magnificent backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains, there will be food trucks and activity booths galore, art stations, two farmers’ markets and Earth Day celebrations.

Participants may enter and exit the 6.5 miles of car-free streets anywhere along the route. The event takes place on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, at 8:30 a.m. with the kick off and a press conference, the day continues until 4 p.m.

This is a family-friendly, multi-generational event. Any and all forms of people-powered transportation are welcome including cyclists, scooters, rollerbladers, strollers and walkers.

Presented by Metro, CicLAvia catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free streets. CicLAvia engages with people to transform our relationships with our communities and with each other.

CicLAvia is free and no registration required. Show up anywhere along the route. If arriving by car, there will be free parking available in and around each hub. Metrolink also has two stations located along the route in Pomona and Claremont.
