Arroyo Seco Via will link up downtown Los Angeles with Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley in a fun and festive ride to promote the implementation of a protected bike path for commuting and recreational use. Building on the excitement of CicLAvia, riders will depart from two venues: Hahamongna Watershed Park nestled at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains in Pasadena and 2) the Los Angeles River State Historic Park at the Cornfields near downtown Los Angeles. It's an eleven mile route each way, perfect for riders of every skill level.
Funds raised from the festive activities will be used for a technical feasibility study that will define a route and determine cost estimates for the bikeway. The study will be conducted by professional engineer Peter Jacobsen, an internationally prominent expert on bicycle safety and the author of "Century of Bikes," Pasadena's bike plan adopted in 2000.
The Arroyo Seco has been called the most celebrated canyon in Southern California. This spectacular corridor with a gentle river flowing through it links downtown Los Angeles with Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley.
The Arroyo Seco is ideally suited to feature a bicycle path as a viable transporation alternative as well as a recreational route. It's a gentle downhill ride of about ten miles from Pasadena to the downtown Los Angeles filled with scenic hightlights and cultural landmarks. The path would parallel the Gold Line train with six nearby stations so that bike riders take the train one way and ride the other in the spectacular natural setting of the Arroyo Seco.
It's a fun, refreshing and healthy alternative to freeway congestion.
