626 Golden Streets, presented by Metro, will link the Meridian Gold Line Station in South Pasadena with downtown Alhambra and the historic San Gabriel Mission. This event is modeled after the thousands of other "open streets" or "ciclovia" events that have been organized throughout the region. 626 Golden Streets will temporarily open stretches of roadway for people to walk, jog, skate, bike and more.
There will be no "right" way to experience Golden Streets. No finish line. Participants may join and depart the route anywhere they wish. We only ask that you be considerate and courteous of others along the way, enjoy the event at your own pace, and check out the many local businesses, organizations, community groups and more who will be found across the route.
The goals of the event are to raise awareness about the Gold Line Foothill Extension and future plans, encourage local residents to walk, bike, skate and scoot to the new Gold Line stations, and allow local residents of all ages and abilities to experience streets from a unique perspective. The goals will be met by:
There is no start/finish, meaning participants are welcome to join the event anywhere along the route. However we encourage participants to access the event via metro and/or people-power!
