LOS ANGELES — It's a car free day in parts of LA.

Some six miles of streets in west Los Angeles all the way to the ocean are closed to motor vehicles Sunday as the city's CicLAvia (sick-luh-VEE'-uh) festival opens the lanes to cyclists.

With Venice Beach and Culver City as hubs, the route stretches along Washington and Venice boulevards and other connecting roadways.

Thousands of cyclists, skaters and pedestrians are expected to participate in CicLAvia, modeled on a weekly car-free event started in Bogota, Colombia.

Food trucks, musical performers and neighborhood guides are set up along the route. The streets will be closed to cars until 4 p.m.

Previous routes have gone through downtown, South Los Angeles and along Wilshire Boulevard.
