Los Angeles celebrates its sixth CicLAvia on Sunday, with Venice Boulevard mostly closed to cars from downtown to the beach. Parts of Alvarado, 7th and Main streets will be closed downtown.
The idea is to give people on foot and bicycles the chance to experience the city from a different perspective. About 100,000 people have taken part in past CicLAvia events, organizers say.
There will be food trucks along the route and spots for children to learn bicycle safety. Rental bikes will be available near City Hall and in Mid-City Los Angeles, and there are water stops, rest rooms and first aid on the route.
A listing of the services and a map with the crossings open to cars is available at http://www.CicLAvia.org.
