Have Fun Out There Sunday!!

October 9, 2010 at 12:14 pm 4 comments

Here’s our last article before tomorrow’s extravaganza. So here are some tips for enjoying the day! Wooot! Woooooot!

> L.A. Streetsblog has a helpful CicLAvia One Stop Activity Planner – which we contributed to, so we don’t feel too bad about reproducing it at the bottom of this post.

> Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilmember Jose Huizar will kick off CicLAvia at Hollenbeck Park at 10am. They’ll be sending off the kids and LACBC rides! Villaraigosa plans to bicycle the entire 7.5-mile route!

> Famosa y hermosa actresses Ellen Page and Kyra Sedgwick are each planning to attend! Hear Ellen Page speak at the rally to Kick Coal and Oil Out of Los Angeles!

> Newly added activities: Eagle Rock Yacht Club and World Dodgeball Society host Dodgeball on 7th Street! Coca-Cola Live Positively health screenings, hydration stations, and a soccer shoot out game at City Hall! Chalk for Peace on 7th Street! Free sample fruit drinks at Un Solo Sol Kitchen on nearby 1st Street in Boyle Heights!

> CicLAvia recommends bringing your own refillable water bottle! You can re-fill at our four Rest Stops (If you forget, no problem, though.)

> Don’t forget the immortal (possibly apocryphal) words of George W. Bush on September 11th 2001: “GO SHOPPING!” Try a restaurant, bakery, museum, bowling alley, or store that you haven’t been in before!

      This was such a wonderful event! Kudos to you for organizing this..I had so much fun! It was amazing to be able to ride in the street and not worry about traffic. Plus it was amazing to see how many people showed up and everyone was having a wonderful time! My only complaint? I wish this could happen EVERY Sunday!!

      Agreed, it was a lot of fun.. and what a fantastic way to see parts of LA I don’t normally visit. I hope we do it again soon!
