More than 20,000 bicyclists, pedestrians and others using non-motorized modes of transportation replaced car traffic along six miles of streets in Culver City and Venice on Sunday for the 14th edition of CicLAvia.
Washington and Venice boulevards and other streets along the route — which is bookended by the Culver City Metro Expo Line Station and Venice Beach – – were closed to cars between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Hubs featuring activities and food stalls were sprinkled throughout the route at the Mar Vista Farmers Market, Tellefson Park, Venice Beach and downtown Culver City.
Landmarks along the way included Muscle Beach and Ocean Front Walk in Venice, King Fahad Mosque, Museum of Jurassic Technology, Sony Pictures Studios, Ballona Creek Bike Path and Helms Bakery.
Los Angeles police spokesman Mike Lopez said in excess of 20,000 were on hand, but a more precise crowd estimate was not immediately available.
No arrests were reported as the event appeared to have gone smoothly, he said.
Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department said firefighters answered some medical calls, but nothing serious.
