Ciclavia! Hollywood to Downtown Los Angeles

Violet reports from Ciclavia, the Los Angeles biking event where city streets are closed down and bicycles take over! It happens four times a year, and this time the route was eight miles between Hollywood and downtown L.A.! In the video, Violet navigates down Vine st., through Hollywood to the Paramount Pictures Studios entrance where African dancers were performing. Then she keeps biking to Wilshire and Western, right by the Wiltern Theater – at the beginning of Koreatown!

But her favorite hub was at McCarthur Park downtown where there was lots of food, live music, a Mexican parade, a gigantic armadillo – and even little baby ducks splashing in the pond! It’s great to get outside without the car and see the city up close and personal for a change, which is why Ciclavia is such a great event! See you at the next one!
