CicLAvia organizers recently announced the next 3 dates of the popular event, with the next one coming Sunday, April 6. However, CicLAvia leaders also hinted at what may be in store for 2015 and beyond, starting with a possible event outside the central city for the first time. CicLAvia itself aims to establish as many as 9 events annually from 2017 onward. Moreover, groups unaffiliated with CicLAvia are proposing their own events at disparate locations within Los Angeles County. Funds provided by Metro would make CicLAvia and similar events a more regular occurrence in future years. Architectural pundit Chris Hawthorne argues that holding more of these events will prove crucial inchanging people’s attitudes towards bicycling, mass transit and walking in a city otherwise designed for the automobile.
