“About 200,000 people hit the streets of downtown Los Angeles on bikes, rollerblades, skateboards and just about anything without a motor Sunday in the city’s second “CicLAvia,” according to the event’s producers.

The event’s name and inspiration came from Ciclovía in Bogota, Colombia. There city officials temporarily block off the main streets to cars every Sunday and holiday as runners, skaters and bicyclists take to open spaces. Ciclovía is a Spanish term for bike path that has become synonymous for this event.”
