“After the first CicLAvia and having the success we had on 10/10/10, there was this immediate sense of ‘Wow, this is great, when can you bring it to my part of Los Angeles?’” said Aaron Paley, the nonprofit organization’s co-founder and executive director. “We got inquiries from lots of great fans of CicLAvia in the Valley right away. The last couple of years, the issue has just been how many can we do and how quickly can we get it to all these different places.”
The city’s Department of Cultural Affairs has awarded funds to Strijbos & Van Rijswijk to create a walkscape for the Valley route with their composition platform Walk With Me. Relying on GPS data, the free app will offer users a chance to hear melodies and tidbits of information related to their particular surroundings along the route. Food trucks, bike repair stations and a kid zone will also be among the event’s offerings, Gard said.
CicLAvia — The Valley will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 22. I want you to walk with me. For more information, go to www.ciclavia.org. Read all about this project
