If you’re looking to play Pokémon GO with other players around Los Angeles, California, read on below to learn more about the next CicLAvia event, which is set to take place on December 10:
The main purpose of CicLAvia is to encourage community exploration and interaction on the determined route. Pokémon GO players are invited to attend the event if they’re interested in the event and community itself, and are interested in connecting with both community members and other players. Because this is focused on the community aspect, there will be no special integrations beyond what is normally available in the game.
● The CicLAvia event is a 501c3 non-profit that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good
health through car-free street events. CicLAvia engages with people to positively transform our relationship with
our communities and with each other. CicLAvia temporarily opens streets across Los Angeles county to all
Angelenos to bike, walk, skate, dance, and play. Free to the public, the event turns the streets into a park space
that connects diverse portions of the city. Currently, CicLAvia has five events per year, always on a Sunday.
● This is a free program and is open to people of all ages and physical abilities. No tickets are required. Please find
all event related information here: http://www.ciclavia.org/faq
● The official program date and time is Sunday, December 10 from 9am – 3pm PDT. The 4-mile car-free route can
be found here: http://www.ciclavia.org/ciclavia_iconic_wilshire
● While attending the program, please always be aware of your surroundings, follow all local rules and respect
other Trainers, program participants, members of the City staff, program volunteers, security, police, and
emergency management staff.
Pokémon GO integration:
● This program activity is conducted in partnership with CicLAvia and Niantic, Inc., one of the companies behind
