Streets in the San Fernando Valley will be closed to cars and trucks Sunday, but open to people on foot, skateboards, rollerblades, bikes and wheelchairs for the latest edition of CicLAvia.
The seven-hour event starts with an opening ceremony at 8:30 am. at the corner of Roscoe and Van Nuys boulevards and will follow a vehicle-free route from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. through Panorama City, Arleta and Pacoima, officials said.
CicLAvia is not a race, but a way for people to explore parts of Los Angeles at their own pace, officials said. Since the event began in 2010, the emphasis has been on promoting car-free transportation and the exploration of public spaces.
There is no start or finish and participants can begin where they like and cover as much of the course as they want. Traffic flows in two directions, so cyclists should keep to the right.
Councilmembers Nury Martinez and Monica Rodriguez are expected to be among those in attendance.
The route and more information about the event can be found at www.ciclavia.org/.
