Yesterday, L.A.'s popular CicLAvia open streets event took place on Venice Boulevard from Venice Beach and Culver City. It was the fifty-first CicLAvia.

Tens of thousands of people enjoyed bicycling, skating, walking, and running on six miles of quiet car-free streets.

As a cool April morning gave way to warm afternoon sun, crowds swelled. As usual for these events, many cyclists took to Metro rail, crowding E Line trains, especially in the morning. Along the route, lines were long at local restaurants and at event hubs.
