LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Sunday afternoon, alternative ways of transportation filled Frankfort Avenue for the annual CycLOUvia. 

Frankfort Avenue from Pope Street to Stilz Avenue was closed to vehicles for most of the afternoon.

CycLOUvia is designed to encourage people to come together by staying active and walking, cycling, skateboarding or dancing in the street. 

It's all part of Mayor Greg Fischer's Healthy Hometown Movement. 

Businesses along the street were also encouraged to open their doors to showcase what they have to offer. 

"When you get into the bikes, when you get into the buses, when you get into events like this, really the community comes together and it just shows how a community can get together and actually change how many cars are on the road, and really move into a more bike-friendly culture," bicyclist Matthew Glaser said. 

Sunday's ride marked the 13th CycLOUvia held in the area.
