Join us for a ride up Santa Monica Boulevard through Beverly Hills where we will join the latest CicLAvia. Starting at San Vicente Boulevard on Sunday August 18th at 9AM and heading east into Hollywood, this promises to be one of the most pedestrian friendly routes yet.
Our neighbor West Hollywood has made great strides in ensuring its segment of Santa Monica Boulevard pedestrian friendly and a great place to stroll. So many bars, restaurants and other attractions make it a great place to walk — and to arrive by bicycle.
Just down the hill on San Vicente is the fantastic West Hollywood library (it puts our aging building to shame!) and the new West Hollywood public park. That city is really going great guns. And now CicLAvia will transform the original Route 66 where the car was king into a closed-street cycling paradise.
Further east into Hollywood there is plenty more to see (especially if like us you are a local loathe to venture up there) and it’s much more pleasurable to see it by bike.
Thanks Metro for making CicLAvia happen. Maybe one day Beverly Hills will get on board with our own closed-street extravaganza to celebrate our new classy Santa Monica Boulevard high-viz bicycle lanes.
