Ciclovia: Bogotá, Colombia

Clarence Erikson, Jr, with comrades Karla Quintero (Transportation Alternatives) and Aaron Naparstek (Streetsblog) went to Bogotá, Colombia to document some of the amazing advances going on in the livable streets movement there. One Sunday they spent the entire day - from 5:00am to nearly 5:00pm - riding bicycles around the city courtesy of the Ciclovia, a weekly event in which over 70 miles of city streets are closed to traffic where residents come out to walk, bike, run, skate, recreate, picnic, and talk with family, neighbors and strangers. According to Erikson, "It is simply one of the most moving experiences I have had in my entire life!"
