Bicyclists visit the La Brea Tar Pits, a stop along the CicLAvia route that closed a six-mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard to car traffic on Sunday.

Tens of thousands of people walked, jogged and biked along a closed six-mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard on Sunday for the first CicLAvia of 2014. Several of the participants were representatives from other cities and countries, hoping to take lessons from the event back to their hometowns. 

They came from six other countries and a total of 30 cities -- from Cape Town to Columbus, Ohio -- to attend the second Open Streets National Summit. The weekend conference featured panels and workshops that shared best practices of  successful open streets initiatives.
