Our friends over at Streetsfilms put this film together on the recent Ciclovia events in Bogota, Colombia.

Every Sunday and holiday, every week, the City of Bogotá, Colombia closes down over 70 miles of roadways to cars and let people bike, walk, talk, exercise, picnic, sunbathe, I could go on and on. Just watch the video, it’s amazing. This video comes to you via Streetfilms from the Open Planning Project in NYC.

One Response to Metro Monday: Ciclovia

    Awesome video!

    I’ve been going to Bogota on a regular basis ever since I was born because of family and I have seen the city really progress in the last decade or so.

    There is a lot we can learn from them.

    And trust me, if they can do it, anybody can do it because they have some of the most congested streets and some of the craziest drivers in the world.

    The only problem in the U.S. is that the lobbyists for the gas companies probably will lobby against it.

    Americans should really travel more to open their eyes.
