CicLAvia Event Celebrates UCLA'a 100th Birthday

Another installment of the CicLAvia open-streets festival was held Sunday -- this one celebrating UCLA's 100th birthday.

The 33rd edition of the event, which began at 9 a.m., opened streets in Westlake, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights, and downtown Los Angeles (where UCLA originally began as a teachers college) to bicycles, pedestrians and skaters.

No vehicle traffic was permitted.

The route was bracketed by four CicLAvia "hubs" -- MacArthur Park, Civic Center, Chinatown and Mariachi Plaza. Some of the streets closed to vehicle traffic included Broadway, Central, West Seventh Street and East Fourth Street.

All hubs had restrooms, bike repair, free water, first aid, and bike parking.

Organizers say more than 1.6 million people have attended CicLAvia events since the first one in 2010.

The final CicLAvia event scheduled for 2019 will be in the Valley on Dec. 8 -- along a new route.
