CicLAvia goes downtown Sunday for 5th anniversary


CicLAvia returns to downtown Los Angeles and the Eastside on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It's a six-mile route connecting MacArthur Park, Chinatown and Hollenbeck Park via the 4th Street bridge. The main streets are 7th, Spring, North Broadway and 1st. In CicLAvia parlance, it's the Heart of LA route.

It's also a birthday. The first CicLAvia was held Oct. 10, 2010. "Now, five years, fourteen events and hundreds of thousands of participants later, CicLAvia is the largest open streets event in North America," the organization says.
