cicLAvia, 2011

photo by: standardpixelWhat: CicLAvia
When: Sunday, October 9, 10am-3pm
Where: Los Angeles

In response to the congestion and pollution of the city streets in Bogota, Columbia, Ciclovías began there over thirty years ago in 1976.

Today they’re held every Sunday and Holidays—and they’re growing in popularity here as we become more concerned about the environment and take to biking which offers a healthy alternative to vehicular transportation.

For five hours this Sunday, the notorious streets of LA will be closed to motor traffic as CicLAvia makes them safe for people to walk, skate, play—and ride a bike.

Quickly becoming a bi-annual event—as shops and restaurants along the route open their doors to participants—seven and a half miles of streets were car-free for the 2010 event and this October new spurs in Chinatown and South LA will be added.

bike the drive, 2011

photo by: CGAphotoWhat: Bike the Drive
When: Sunday, May 29
Where: Lake Shore Drive, Chicago

One day of every year since 2002, Lake Shore Drive is closed to motor vehicle traffic and open only to cyclists for 30 miles—15 north of downtown, and 15 south—from 5:30 to 9:45am.

Take advantage of the situation and get prepped—and don’t forget registration is required to bike the scenic and historic route.

Bonus? Proceeds from the ride help the Active Transportation Alliance to continue improving bike lanes, walking paths and transit in the region. So besides enjoying the festival in Grant Park, it’s for a good cause.

only in south beach: deco bike 

To be completely honest, bicycle rentals are available in many cities—especially in Europe—but only in South Beach Miami will you find Deco Bike with solar powered rental/sharing stations.

They’re new so check them out, take a spin, and enjoy the ride!

Thanks to tameeka, store manager south beach, for this submission.
