Help CicLAvia Kickstart Its Way Back to LA in 2011

by GOOD Design

December 19, 2010

When 7.5 miles of Los Angeles streets were closed to cars this October, it was a result of dedicated volunteers and quite a bit of funding.

Hoping to bring the popular CicLAvia event back in 2011, organizers have teamed up with Kickstarter to help raise funds. Interested donors can make a pledge for a donation online to help organizers reach their goal of $5,000.

But in order for CicLAvia to get any funding, it has to meet its goal by January 31, 2011, or no money is exchanged. Pledges can be as small as $1, and anyone pledging more than $11 will receive a laminated CicLAvia spoke card.

The event is modeled after Ciclovia which began in Bogota, Colombia in the 1970s and has since grown into regular Sunday car-free day.
