Cyclists, pedestrians and skaters are taking advantage of car-free streets in Atwater Village and Glendale today for CicLAvia.

About three miles of streets — including Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village and Central and Brand avenues in Glendale — have been shut down to motor vehicles for most of the day for what’s called an open-streets event. CicLAvia ends at 4 pm but most streets won’t reopen to traffic until 5:30 pm.

Many participants were wearing USA or Mexico Jerseys because of the USA vs Mexico game later today.

“Everything has been so smooth so far,” said John Williams, a security guard working the event this morning. “People have been happy and well behaved around here ”
