CicloSDias: Car-free introduction to Pacific Beach

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Families were encouraged to ditch their cars Sunday and spend the day riding, walking and strolling through Pacific Beach.

The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition turned a few miles of north PB into open streets -- free of cars and encouraged people to explore one of San Diego's nicest communities.

The event was great for local businesses -- it gave owners a chance to open their doors and meet new people.

"On a typical weekend day, this street is jammed with cars and most are just driving by the stores, but on a day like today... you can just walk, you can ride your bike and you can really discover all of the shops right here along Garnet... so it's a great day for the merchants here," said City council member Lorie Zapf. 

Hundreds of businesses took part and thousands of people attended.
