CicLAvia is neither a bike race nor a foot marathon: You can walk, sit, roller-skate, skateboard, or walk your dog, according to organizers. The plan is to keep cars off 7.5 miles of connecting streets for five hours and let Angelenos reclaim the route as a park belt. Last October about 100,000 people did just that along a course linking Boyle Heights to East Hollywood. Some have grumbled about being inconvenienced by this event, which is modeled on Colombia’s popular Ciclovia festival, but residents and motorists need have no fears. Unlike the marathon, there are traffic openings every quarter to half mile. More information.
