On December 7th, 2014, EWB LA Professional Chapter partnered with the local ASCE and ite chapters to provide volunteers for the South LA CicLAvia Event.  With our combined forces we sponsored the Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Figueroa St. intersection offering assistance in controlling bicycle traffic along the Ciclavia route while enjoying the amazing costumes and tricked out bikes!
