On Sunday, April 22, 2018 the cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and Claremont will host a 6.5-mile CicLAvia, one of the largest open streets events in the country - from 9am-4pm. This open street event will bring together thousands of people of all ages enjoying and rediscovering their communities on car-free streets by foot, bike, and other forms of non-motorized transport. Downtown San Dimas will serve the west endpoint of the route and downtown Claremont will be the east endpoint - with downtown La Verne and northern Pomona connecting the cities.
