Today's El Tiempo newspaper published a report on the proliferation of 'bicycles' equipped with gasoline-powered motors. These are simply small motorcycles, they have no pollution controls and shouldn't be on either the Ciclovia or the Ciclorutas. We're not talking about quiet, non-polluting electric bikes here. In Chile, they're called 'mosquitos', and cyclists are compaigning against them. Could be that these things have their place, but they need to be regulated and controlled.
