Sunday's CicLAvia was a bit more slow-paced and relaxed than past events as people took to their feet to explore Wilshire Boulevard's unique architecture, organizers said.
A pedestrian zone at each end of the route -- downtown L.A. and the Miracle Mile -- enabled people to saunter without fear of being run over by hordes of cyclists.
"Both of those spots and our hub in Koreatown were like mini festivals unto themselves," CicLAvia spokesman Robert Gard said.
He said April's CicLAvia event, a 30-mile round trip from downtown L.A. to Venice Beach, was more frenetic, drawing more than 200,000 people. He estimated that this CicLAvia drew about 150,000.
"A lot of people were excited just to explore the neighborhoods and look at the architecture at a leisurely pace, as opposed to to April, when they felt like they had to get to the beach and back," he said.
