Edison Brings Sustainability, Electric Cars to CicLAvia's Heart of the Foothills

The next CicLAvia event will take place on June 24 in the Valley.

The cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont and Pomona went car-free on Sunday and shut down their streets to welcome CicLAvia into their neighborhoods. Residents and people from surrounding areas were able to enjoy a whole day to explore the cities, enjoy leisure exercise by walking, cycling or skating through the Heart of the Foothills. The event coincided with Earth Day. 


Attendees of CicLAvia got a glimpse of this handmade greenhouse along the path. This sparkling dome had small plants inside and is located at Bonita Avenue and Magnolia Avenue in La Verne.


A tree along Magnolia Avenue in La Verne had a fairy garden on display with solar panels.


The 6.5 mile route of CicLAvia included the cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont and Pomona. 


The car-free event is inspired by Bogotá’s weekly Ciclovía. In 2010, CicLAvia made its debut in Los Angeles and since then, more than 1 million people have experienced CicLAvia.


Attendees also got to learn about how Southern California Edison is committed to creating a clean energy future for California. The company is helping to reduce emissions from cars and trucks for cleaner air and helping to make electric vehicles more affordable. Photo Credit: Jessica Kellett
