CicLAvia 2022 is coming to the city of West Hollywood. CicLAvia—Meet the Hollywoods Presented by Metro will take place on Sunday, August 21, 2022. The Streets of West Hollywood, Hollywood and East Hollywood will be transformed into car-free open streets for the day. It will stretch from the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the City of West Hollywood’s inclusive pride crosswalks.

Everyone is invited to come along for the ride and walk, bike, roll, and stroll through along the area’s most iconic streets on Sunday, August 21, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will close Santa Monica Boulevard from N. La Brea Avenue to N. San Vicente Boulevard to vehicle traffic and thousands of cyclists will fill the streets.

The City of West Hollywood held its first CicLAvia street event in August 2019 in partnership with the City of Los Angeles. CicLAvia: Meet the Hollywoods opened 6.5 miles of roadway to residents and visitors who explored the car-free streets. The event was held on a Sunday. The route extended from Hollywood Blvd and Vermont.

CicLAvia worked closely with businesses. Meet the Hollywoods was a great success with an estimated 35,000 people in attendance. Most were cyclists or other wheeled participants, but there were also over 10,000 pedestrians. The community was engaged, bringing together thousands of people along one of the City’s main corridors.

CicLAvia is a nonprofit organization that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through car-free streets. CicLAvia engages with people to transform our relationship with our communities and with each other. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia temporarily closes streets to car traffic. CicLAvia connects communities to each other across an expansive city, creating a safe place to bike, walk, skate, roll, and dance through LA County. 1.6 million people have experienced CicLAvia; it is the biggest open streets event in the United States.

I hate CiLAvia the city has enough problems with traffic and doesn’t need a “bike day”. The bikes can stay in the bike lanes.
