Bike Video Thursday: Ciclovia: Bogotá, Colombia

Awesome!  Dean sent me a link to a video and blog post about how the city of Bogota, Columbia closes 70 miles of streets EVERY SUNDAY from 5 am to 5 pm so people can use them for biking and skating and walking.  They are big streets!  4 lanes!  It’s looks like a blast!  When Dean sent me this and suggested it for bike video Thursday, instead of saying “Great, you post it,” I turned into some sort of control freak and said I would. Sorry!

I also cracked up when they said they initally had problems finding people to be monitor type people for it, until they changed the name of the monitors to Bike Watch to play off the show Bay Watch and then they got about 1500!
