Two Open Streets events in 2 weeks here in Orange County — today’s event in Garden Grove was a smashing success!

The route was unique – a mini-grid around the Civic Center and Historic Main Street – it took me awhile to find my way, but there were delights tucked away along many sections of the route.

Free of cars, like all the similar Los Angeles events, Garden Grove Open Streets came just a week after Santa Ana’s SoMoS, the first cyclovia in Orange County.

Pick up a piece of chalk...

Everyone had something to say — pick up a piece of chalk…

Could we host a cyclovia for ourselves? What would car-free streets in Newport Beach look like? Where would we stage it? What would we showcase?
