Sundays in Latin America are awesome. And it’s all Bogota’s fault.
Every Sunday since the 1970s, Bogota shuts off its streets to traffic and opens them up to the people during an event called the ciclovia. More than one million bikers, pedestrians and roller bladers take over 60-plus miles of highway.
From 7 am to 2 pm, the city becomes a living gym.
Over the past 40-plus years, the concept of Bogota’s ciclovia, Spanish for bike pathway, has spread throughout Colombia and Latin America.
