Thousands of people descended into South LA on Sunday, Feb. 23 to kick off the 10th Anniversary of CicLAvia with a 6-mile car-free route connecting South Central, Florence-Firestone and Watts.
There were several Hubs along the route including one at the District Office of Councilman Curren Price, which featured free bike and helmet giveaways, an archery range, vendors, as well as cheerleading performances by Harmony Elementary School and Nimitz Middle School.
Over the past 10 years, the non-profit organization has been promoting the importance of health, wellness and alternative modes of transportation. They have held 35 events throughout Los Angeles, closing off traffic to allow the community to ride bikes, skate board, roller skate, run or walk.
"Having CicLAvia come to South LA provided a unique experience which united the community," said Councilman Price. "People were able to experience our neighborhood in a way many people have never done before."
