Respect La Ciclovia!

Finally, someone with a bit of economic (and apparently political) pull has pitched in in defense of La Ciclovia de la Septima.     The campaign is being led by Angelica Lozano, ex-mayor of the Chapinero neighboood.

La Septima, or Seventh Avenue, is the most important section of La Ciclovia, and passes by many of the city's most important landmarks. However, the city plans to expand the Transmilenio express bus system along Seventh. The Ciclovia's 26th St. branch already disappeared for the construction of Transmilenio on that street - without any public consultation or legal process. We don't want the same to happen on Seventh Ave.

With construction set to start perhaps as early as November, let's hope it's not too late.

The organization apparently consists of residents of neighborhoods like Chapinero and others along La Ciclovia.
