    Well… it's about time. Bike Month is 1 week away. Where's all RIBike's hoopla? Guess everyone is just whipped. But not in Bogatá, Columbia. Streetfilms report on Gil Penalosa (Enrique's brother), Director of Parks& Recreation, and their Ciclovía livable street initiative… http://www.streetfilms.org/ciclovia/
    … in which they close 70 miles of city streets every Holiday/Sunday to all motorized transportation, thus clearing pavement for boarding, cycling, exercising, and walking. Tens of thousands participate to de-stress from workweek.

    Other places have followed suit around the world. There's been some limited experiments around America. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciclov%C3%ADa
