To encourage the community’s safe and healthy participation in CicLAvia, Walk Bike Burbank, the local non-profit chapter of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition will be at Burbank Farmers’ Market Community table Saturday, March 21 from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm providing free bicycle safety checks and performing various minor mechanical services to get you and your bike safely on the road.  Even if your tires only need a little air, bring your bike to Burbank Farmers’ Market for Saturday’s free community safety event.

 

Sunday’s main CicLAvia bike-ride opens car-free streets between North Hollywood and Studio City to thousands of people using foot, pedal and other non-motorized wheel power for safe low-stress urban village-like exploration.   CicLAvia demonstrates that bicycling and walking transportation choices can help connect people and local businesses through closer, denser community ties.

We can envision a better city with active transportation options that provide fundamental and safe mobility access when accompanied by municipal infrastructure that creates people-friendly streets.

 

 

Transporting your bike to this Saturday’s Farmers’ Market safety event is easy and convenient also.  Simply take Metro bus 183, 292, 155 or 96!  You can effortlessly put your bike on the bus’s front bike rack and go directly to Burbank Farmers’ Market using the Olive/Glenoaks Metro stop.
