CicLAvia, the popular car-free event that clears Los Angeles roads for bicyclists and pedestrians, is shutting down streets from Pico Union to Mid-City on Sunday.

It spans a 4-mile route with festivities from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The following street closures went into effect at 7 a.m. and were scheduled to be lifted around 6 p.m.:

  • Washington Boulevard from La Brea Avenue to Seventh Avenue
  • Seventh Avenue from Washington Boulevard to Venice Boulevard
  • Venice Boulevard from Seventh Avenue to Hoover Street

Traveling through the area? Here are the crossing paths for motorists along the route:

  • On Venice Boulevard: Vermont Avenue, Normandie Avenue, Western Avenue and Arlington Avenue
  • On Washington Boulevard: Crenshaw Boulevard and West Boulevard

There are three activity hubs with food trucks, free water, restrooms and first aid:

  • Venice Boulevard near Hoover Street in Pico Union
  • Venice Boulevard near Third Street in Arlington Heights
  • Washington Boulevard near La Brea Avenue in Mid-City

Those who don’t have bikes can rent them in shops across the county, and rollerblades and skateboards are also welcome.

Inspired by open-street festivals in Bogotá, Colombia, the first CicLAvia was held in L.A. 2010.

The event has since become a regular occurrence across the county. The next CicLAvia event, “Meet the Hollywoods,” is scheduled to happen on Aug. 18 and will roll through West Hollywood, Hollywood and East Hollywood.
