SAN DIMAS, Calif. (AP) — It’s a car free day in cities near LA.
Several miles of streets in San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and Claremont are closed to motor vehicles Sunday as the latest celebration of the CicLAvia (sick-luh-VEE’-uh) festival opens the lanes to cyclists.
Thousands of people on bikes, on skateboards and on foot are expected to participate in the event, modeled on a weekly car-free tradition started in Bogota, Colombia.
Food trucks, musical performers and neighborhood guides are set up along the route in the San Gabriel Valley east of downtown Los Angeles. The streets will be closed to cars until 4 p.m.
