On Sunday, May 1, 2022 the San Gabriel Valley’s largest ciclovia or “open streets” event will return to the Cities of Alhambra, San Gabriel, and South Pasadena. The first 626 Golden Streets since Fall 2019 will provide attendees an opportunity to walk, bike, run, skate, scoot, dance, and play across five miles of car-free streets. A follow-up to the successful 2019 event, Mission-to-Mission will link the historic San Gabriel and South Pasadena Mission Districts with downtown Alhambra.
Like cicLAvia in Los Angeles, 626 Golden Streets is a FREE, family-friendly “ciclovia” that temporarily opens streets for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy in a healthy, fun, and novel fashion. The festivities will kick off at 8:30am with the official Opening Ceremony on Main Street in downtown Alhambra featuring special guests, entertainment, and community raffle. At 9am a family-friendly 5K Fun Run FREE to all youth 17 and under (www.run626.com) will start from the San Gabriel Hub.
The event is free to the general public. Attendees can start and stop at any point along the route, at any time from 9am to 4pm. Activity zones in each participating community will host live music, cultural performances, family-friendly games and activities, kids play zones, vendors, zero-emission demo zones, and more! Participants are encouraged to enjoy the day by foot, bike, skate, skateboard, scooter, or any other type of human-powered vehicle!
