Yesterday CicLAvia premiered a new open streets route through Pico Union and Mid-City. The car-free 4-mile route was mostly along Washington and Venice Boulevards - and included the L.A. City communities of Angelus Vista, Arlington Heights, and Harvard Heights.

Even with hot sunny weather and no easy connection to Metro rail transit, tens of thousands of Angelenos made their way to the event.

Most participants traveled by bicycle (including plenty of Metro Bike Share and Jump rental bikes), but there were also plenty of folks walking, running, skating, and scootering. More than earlier events, Streetblog L.A. observed many people enjoying electric-power skateboards.
