Ride the Metrolink to CicLAvia 04/15/2012

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Meet up to catch Metrolink to Los Angeles for CicLAvia!

The train leaves Palmdale Metrolink Station at 6:39 am, so be there in plenty of time to buy your ticket. Weekend passes are only $10 roundtrip.

There will be a BICYCLE CAR on the train for our bikes!

Ride the streets with NO CARS!!!

CicLAvia lasts from 10 am to 3 pm. This is a wonderful ride in a street festival atmosphere.

We will arrive at LA Union Station at 8:30 am. We will meet a friend of mine, who is taking the San Bernardino line from San Bernardino that arrives at the same time.

Her return train leaves at 1:45 pm; ours is at 2:25 pm.

That gives us plenty of time to ride to our content, enjoying the carless streets.There will be stops in the downtown area where we will wait politely for traffic police to direct us through, but otherwise stops are few and far between.

Here’s a map of the CicLAvia Route.

We will ride as many of the directions as we want, ending in Boyle Heights for lunch, because one of our Caffe Racers knows a great Mexican restaurant there.

Bring enough money for lunch and for any memorabilia you might want to buy along the route.

Please invite any of your friends that you think might want to go, especially those who have never been.
