10/08/2010: "There's Always a First Time"
There's always a first time, and Sunday will be LA's turn: we're going to open some streets to all residents with a ciclovía, inspired by thirty years of street openings in Bogotá, Colombia--a weekly practice that has transformed that city into a South American showcase of civility.

Called "CicLAvia," ours will meander on a variety of streets from Boyle Heights in the east to Heliotrope and Melrose, aka "Hel-Mel," aka the Bicycle District, on the west. Streets will be liberated from the usurpations of the automobile from 10AM to 3PM on Sunday, October 10th, and people will be biking, skating, walking, dancing, picnicking, and possibly even cooking in some much-needed public space.

There's only one first time for anyone, so if you're going to be in Los Angeles, be there...we will be.
