Culver City Will Host CicLAvia Next July

The City of Culver City received notification from Metro last week that the city has been awarded a $453,600 grant to host Culver City CicLAvia in July 2015. 

During these CicLAvia events, whole streets are shut down to car traffic, encouraging bicyclists and pedestrians to explore the city and participate in a space that is normally dominated by automobiles. Since it began in 2010, CicLAvia has quickly become Los Angeles County’s most popular public event, consistently attracting more than 100,000 participants. CicLAvia is free of charge and open to everyone. In 2013, Culver City’s Parcel B and Main Street served as a hub for CicLavia -- to wonderful effect

So far, the proposed 2015 route is a bit sketchy (although, to their defense, they do have a year to nail it down): "From the Culver City Expo Station westward on Washington Boulevard to downtown Culver City through downtown Culver City on Washington/Culver and then continuing west on Washington Boulevard to Washington Place near Tellefson Park. From there the route will continue west on Washington Place to Centinela Avenue where it will turn north to Venice and then continue westward on Venice to Venice Beach."

Culver City CicLAvia is a joint effort with the City of Los Angeles and CicLAvia, a non-profit organization. All three partners received funding through the grant, with each partner contributing a 20% match through in-kind support or monetary contribution.
