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.

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.
