On Sunday, Feb. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., five miles of car-free open streets will be free for all to enjoy as a temporary park space. Participants of all ages and abilities can play, explore local gems and sightsee while experiencing the joy of safe, people-powered transportation on streets that are car-free.
The CicLAvia-The Valley is an opportunity to explore the neighborhoods of Canoga Park, Winnetka and Reseda along Sherman Way. This Feb. 26, CicLAvia-The Valley will be the second time along Sherman Way — the first time occurred in December 2019.
Show up anywhere along the route at any time. Hubs have family-friendly activities, restrooms, free water refilling stations, free basic bike repair, bike parking and first aid. In addition, free pedicab rides, sponsored by AARP, are available at each information booth.
Hubs are walking zones (bike dismounts) and meeting points along the route and offer additional programming and activities. CicLAvia-The Valley will have three hubs along Sherman Way in Canoga Park, Winnetka and Reseda. In addition, there are many local gems near and along The Valley route — discover them at https://www.ciclavia.org/the_valley23_local_gems.
CicLAvia is a nonprofit organization committed to introducing Angelenos to the vibrant civic and cultural treasures throughout Los Angeles. CicLAvia highlights important issues to all Angelenos — from environmental health and air quality improvement to access to safe and open parks, physical and mental well-being.
CicLAvia helps communities re-imagine a greener and cleaner Los Angeles, while also promoting equitable transportation options, healthier lifestyles and closer connections to community. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia has been temporarily closing streets to car traffic and opening them as public parks in Los Angeles since 2010. With more than 260 miles of open streets, The Valley is CicLAvia’s 43rd event.
