There's a lot going on right now - with the L.A. City Council imploding and Metro opening a new rail line - but there was also a tremendously popular open streets event last weekend. CicLAvia returned to the Heart of L.A., with a modified route that included the newly opened 6th Street Viaduct for the first time. The Fourth Street Bridge has long been one of the hang-out spots on the route; this time it was replaced by Sixth Street, which meant even more spectacular views of downtown and its surroundings.

As always, the central L.A. route was very well-attended. Tens of thousands of Angelenos took to their feet, bikes, skates, scooters and skateboards - and smiled their way through the car-free streets from Boyle Heights to Chinatown to Echo Park.

Mark your calendars now for the next CicLAvia coming up on Sunday, December 4 - on a South L.A. route centered on Central Avenue and featuring the Watts Towers and Exposition Park.
