On Sunday, nine miles of Los Angeles streets were closed off to cars to make way for other kinds of wheels. Pedaling Angelenos from all walks of life hit the streets to take part in the fifth installation of CicLAvia.

The event was well-attended and went off problem free. Here's part of Biking In LA's summary:
