Less than a week after CicLAvia held its first open streets event in the Valley, they're already hitting us with another opportunity to take to the street sans cars. On Sunday, May 31, main drag Colorado Boulevard will be shut down from just west of Fair Oaks all the way to Pasadena City College, says a release from event organizers. The 3.5-mile route will branch off on some side streets (Raymond, Lake) on the way, and, of course, the Metro-sponsored event will have connections to both the Memorial Park and Del Mar Gold Line stations to maximize the day's car-free potential.
Pasadena's not the only city in the San Gabriel Valley to want a car-free event like CicLAvia. South Pas and other cities were trying to organize a similar event to coincide with the opening of the Gold Line in late 2015 or 2016. Meanwhile, there are two more CicLAvia's already scheduled for this year: one in Culver City and Venice on August 9, and a remixed Heart of LA route on October 18.
