Occidental College partners with CicLAvia on Sunday, April 15, 2012 in an event that closed downtown L.A. to cars, trucks and other motorized vehicles. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., bicyclists, runners, walkers, skateboarders and inline skaters were able to travel a 10-mile route through the heart of Los Angeles. Occidental is the only college or university helping to sponsor CicLAvia, which counts the city of L.A. and nonprofit philanthropic groups among its sponsors. Jorge Gonzalez, dean of the College and vice president of academic affairs, joined Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to kick off the event downtown.
