Ciclovía is my new favorite thing in Bogotá. It is basically a shutdown of certain streets on Sundays to allow for recreation mostly biking. I did it this morning for the first time since I have been here and it was really fun. I went by myself this time but hope to get other folks energized to go next week or the week after. In addition to shutting down many streets there are also certain spots along the route were people are leading aerobic sessions with more than 100 people participating. It seemed like there were mostly people just out for a slow ride today. I might try and go earlier next time to see if there are more serious riders out. There is a website all in Spanish with some pictures.
