LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Those who have imagined breezing through the streets of Los Angeles without a car in sight can live the dream Sunday during the city’s sixth CicLAvia event.
CicLAvia To The Sea closed 15 miles of city streets, from downtown L.A. to Venice Beach, for the anticipated 10,000 bicyclists, roller skaters and skateboarders — and any sort of wheeled contraption as long as it’s not an automobile.
Those attending this free event will have the rule of the road through 3 p.m. The event got underway at 10 a.m.
Vehicles will be allowed to cross the CicLAvia route at major intersections, where officers will be present to direct traffic.
CicLAvia To The Sea is the event’s longest route to date, stretching from the city’s historic center at El Pueblo de Los Angeles all the way to Venice Beach’s boardwalk.
There are two more CicLAvia events this year: CicLAvia — Iconic Wilshire Boulevard on June 23 and cicLAvia — Heart of LA on Oct. 6.
