Feeder Route to Ciclavia, Sunday April 21

Ciclavia to the Sea will turn Venice Blvd into a biking paradise this Sunday.  The full route will run from Venice Beach to City Hall and the historic El Pueblo district.  A feeder ride will pass through our neighborhood.  The group will start at the UCLA Bruin Bear at 9:30am, picking up riders along the way as it passes down Westwood Blvd.  A great way to share a Sunday with the community!
