CicLAvia 2011: Los Angelenos Take Back the Streets

2:49 PM PDT on April 18, 2011

In a city that has defined itself by both cars and status symbols, CicLAvia is more than a seven and a half mile street party with a funny name, it’s one of the many signs that Los Angeles is changing and one’s status is not represented by the car that one owns.

But for the people that took to the streets on April 10, 2011, CicLAvia was about many other things. Freedom, fun, fellowship and community were just some of the answers Rob Adams got when he asked Angelenos from all walks life what CicLAvia meant to them. And what’s a film without some cameo appearances? Look for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and an even more famous cyclist as Adams pedals his way through another wonderful Southern Californian Sunday.
