Must Do: CicLAvia


Bicycling the car-free streets of L.A. among thousands of fellow pedalers is urban heaven.

How to do it: Walk, skate, or bike—you can do all three during the weekend event, which is scheduled several times a year in different areas of the city. Don’t have a bike? Rent one for the day at Flying Pigeon L.A. in Cypress Park, which organizes group outings.
