LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Another installment of the CicLAvia open-streets festival will be held tomorrow — this one celebrating UCLA’s 100th birthday.

The event, which begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. Sunday, will open streets in Westlake, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights, and downtown Los Angeles (where UCLA originally began as a teachers college) to bicycles, pedestrians and skaters. No vehicle traffic will be permitted.

The route is bracketed by four CicLAvia “hubs” — MacArthur Park, Civic Center, Chinatown and Mariachi Plaza. Some of the streets closed to vehicle traffic include Broadway, Central, West Seventh Street and East Fourth Street.

All hubs will have restrooms, bike repair, free water, first aid, and bike parking.

Organizers say more than 1.6 million people have attended CicLAvia events since the first one in 2010.

The final CicLAvia event scheduled for 2019 will be in the Valley on Dec. 8 — along a new route.
