December 7's CicLAvia South LA will mark the furthest forays into South LA for the event, which shuts down streets to cars and opens them up to other forms of transportation, like bikes, feet, and rollerskates. No route yet has gone south of Exposition Boulevard; this time, the whole thing is south of the 10 Freeway. The route will travel six miles mostly along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, branching off at Leimert Park, and at two hubs on Central Avenue, including one called Jazz Park (please have live jazz; don't lead us on!).
Usually we don't hear the juicy details about which food trucks will be where and where you can take a free Zumba class until the event is a little closer, but we do know there will be a soft-opening of Leimert Park's new plaza created under the city's new People St program. (The official ribbon-cutting will be in January.)
It's all going to be a lot to see in a little less time than usual: as the map and the Facebook event remind attendees, with Daylight Saving Time over, it gets darker earlier, so CicLAvia will only go until 3 pm instead of 4.
