The most recent CicLAvia through South LA on December 7, 2014 was superb. We rode in fluorescent yellow through Exposition Park to Leimert Park then back to the Central Ave Hub.
We had a great time at the Leimert Park hub listening to some Reggae music. We saw lots of artwork and food for sale but we forgot to bring cash with us. We got interviewed by some students on their tablet and are still looking forward to seeing our interview on the web.
Our full route is shown below. We took Vermont south to USC. On the way home we passed Skid Row and Dodger Stadium. We did some off-roading in Elysian Park. Even though it looks flat on the map, our ride home was quite hilly.
In other bike-related news, we have launched an advocacy landing page to ask for support of our efforts to get a dedicated bicycle car on every metrolink train. You can follow our progress on Facebook at 'Bikecar101' and on Twitter @bikecar101. If you agree that cyclists and non-cyclists would benefit from having a guarantee of a bike car on each train, add your zip code and email address to our google form on the landing page, like us on Facebook and follow us on twitter.
