Sunday, April 15th, an event called CicLAvia took over the streets of downtown Los Angeles, which meant bicycles and their one-two-and three-wheel cousins had their run of avenues and boulevards usually reserved for gas guzzling automobiles.
According to the LA Times, some 100,000 cyclists, skaters and pedestrians participated in this, the city’s fourth CicLAvia. Add to that an estimated 30 Trikke riders who met up Sunday morning, just south of City Hall, and carved their way en masse through the 10-mile course, at times confounding cyclists who didn’t quite know what to make of all that swerving in their linear bike world.
The thirty carvers represented the most at a CicLAvia event, so far. Among them was Gildo Beleski, inventor of the Trikke, along with his wife and two sons.
