If you're already planning a DTLA retail therapy excursion this weekend, consider rolling through this Sunday's CicLAvia. The bike-, skate- and pedestrian-friendly event's Heart of LA route invades a host of shoppable nabes, including ShopWalk haunt Historic Core, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, and more.
Rolling from 9am to 4pm, the six-mile route rides through West 7th Street, Spring Street, North Broadway, and West 1st/Central/4th Street—so consider this a PSA to expect some road closures if your Downtown play date involves a car. Check out the full map and all the need-to-know deets here.
