CicLAvia Comes to Los Angeles

 The car-free zone will include parts of Boyle Heights, Downtown, MacArthur Park, Koreatown and East Hollywood

On Sunday Oct. 10, seven and a half miles of  Los Angeles streets will be transformed into a car free zone, allowing Angelenos to bike and walk through these normally busy streets.

The zone will be a part of Los Angeles' inaugural CicLAvia, an event inspired by car-free events in other cities all over the world.

The zone will include parts of Boyle Heights, Downtown, MacArthur Park, Koreatown and East Hollywood and will be in effect from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to bike and walk through the normally traffic-congested area and enjoy all the area has to offer without the distraction of cars. Businesses in the zone will also be opening early.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa  has been an outspoken supporter of the event on Twitter, and according to the Los Angeles Times is scheduled to help kick off the event at 10 a.m. in Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights.
