CicLAVia Car-Free event is coming to West Hollywood tomorrow, Sunday August 18. This is a reminder that CicLAvia will close Santa Monica Blvd in the West Hollywood area all day from the West Hollywood Gateway on La Brea to the Rainbow Crosswalk on San Vicente Boulevard from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be North/South crossings allowed at major WeHo streets, which include La Brea, Fairfax, Crescent Heights, and La Cienega.

The City of West Hollywood is joining Hollywood, and the East Hollywood area for the car-free, open streets event for 12 hours with CicLAvia — Meet the Hollywoods, presented by Metro.

On Sunday, August 18, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., from the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the City of West Hollywood’s rainbow crosswalk, everyone is invited to come along for the ride and walk, bike, roll, and stroll through along the area’s most iconic streets. 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.

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