Yesterday, CicLAvia opened five miles of Western Avenue through South Los Angeles. The one-street open streets route stretched from Century Boulevard to Exposition Boulevard, a slightly longer route than CicLAvia South L.A.'s initial event on Western two years ago.

As usual at CicLAvia, tens of thousands of Angelenos - of all ages and types - took to the streets on bicycles, feet, skates, scooters and other non-car modes.

Many churches along the route offered free water to event participants experiencing summer heat. Local cafes and activity hubs were packed.
