The cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont and Pomona went car-free on Sunday and shut down their streets to welcome CicLAvia into their neighborhoods. Residents and people from surrounding areas were able to enjoy a whole day to explore the cities, enjoy leisure exercise by walking, cycling or skating through the Heart of the Foothills. The event coincided with Earth Day.
Attendees of CicLAvia got a glimpse of this handmade greenhouse along the path. This sparkling dome had small plants inside and is located at Bonita Avenue and Magnolia Avenue in La Verne.
A tree along Magnolia Avenue in La Verne had a fairy garden on display with solar panels.
The 6.5 mile route of CicLAvia included the cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont and Pomona.
The car-free event is inspired by Bogotá’s weekly Ciclovía. In 2010, CicLAvia made its debut in Los Angeles and since then, more than 1 million people have experienced CicLAvia.
Attendees also got to learn about how Southern California Edison is committed to creating a clean energy future for California. The company is helping to reduce emissions from cars and trucks for cleaner air and helping to make electric vehicles more affordable. Photo Credit: Jessica Kellett
