Before the past weekend began, I was sent a message in my inbox that made me perk up and want to help out. Los Angeles is a sprawling city, and CicLAvia is a project that aims to open seven miles of streets to bikes, pedestrians, dogs, families and strollers, by closing them to cars on
Sunday, September 12
Sunday, October 10, 2010 (10/10/10). If you live in Los Angeles, tell your friends and join the fun this fall! Even if you don’t live in Los Angeles, still consider supporting this cause to help our community play together better, even if only for a day.
See the video my friend Marie made and donate to the cause here:
*****UPDATE 9.28.2010***** Thanks to everyone who donated a little bit to help make a big difference in this project’s outcome. As you can see, this idea raised 118% of it’s goal, so Ciclavia is DEFINITELY happening! Yay! Please save the NEW date: 10.10.10 and share this information with your friends. I mean, there’s nothing like closing down streets for pedestrians, street art, bicycling, etc, for 5 hours. You can get all the current information about this event by going to the website’s action page!
