Location

Alhambra , CA United States

An estimated 20,000 cyclists, pedestrians, skaters, and others came out for the 626 Golden Streets Mission-to-Mission event this past Sunday. Organized by Active SGV and funded by LA Metro, this was the second 626 Golden Streets, and was designed to promote active transportation in the San Gabriel Valley. The route began at the South Pasadena Mission Street Gold Line station and went through Alhambra’s Main Street and then ended at the San Gabriel Mission. Participants played carnival games, climbed a rock wall, tested electric bikes and cruisers, and took part in other activities at the South Pasadena, Alhambra and San Gabriel event hubs.

Check out our photo slideshow and video of the event, and let your voice be heard by taking our cycling/pedestrian traffic survey. You could win an Amazon gift-card!
