The people behind CicLAvia, the recurring LA festival that closes down city streets to cars and turns them over to cyclists and pedestrians, released the maps today for their final events of 2014 (an April CicLAvia traversed Wilshire Boulevard). October 5's Heart of LA event will cover a well-trodden route with a few new additions; the borders stretch to Echo Park and the East LA Civic Center, with activities planned at each point, as well as at Mariachi Plaza, Chinatown, and along Broadway, with a "pedestrian zone" through the theater district. The event will coincide with the Festival of Philippine Art & Culture, being held simultaneously in Grand Park.
Two months later, on December 7, CicLAvia turns to South LA, with a brand new, 13.5-mile route route traversing Martin Luther King Boulevard. Spurs along Central Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard will allow for partying along the historic jazz corridor and in Leimert Park.
Next year, CicLAvia will go way outside its comfort zone, with events planned for the Valley, Pasadena, Culver City, and along a new Downtown route.
