CicLAvia South L.A. December 2022 – Open Thread

11:24 AM PST on December 6, 2022

Yesterday's light rain didn't stop CicLAvia South L.A. from opening Central Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and 103rd Street. Attendance was perhaps a little lighter than clear sky CicLAvia events. Nonetheless, tens of thousands of Angelenos took to biking, walking, jogging, skating, horseback riding, and more - on 7.25 miles of car-free streets.

The route featured connections to historic and current South L.A. landmarks from the Watts Towers to the Dunbar Hotel to Exposition Park. Activity hubs showcased community groups, municipal agencies, and elected officials working to improve the quality of life for South L.A. residents.
