|A bicycling family visits Bogotá's Central Cemetery.|
Now, not only tourists, but, more importantly, local residents, can safely and conveniently visited loved ones' tombs by bicycle.
The cemetery has long had a parking lot for cars. So, the very fact that we had to request a bike rack shows the mentality that 'automobile parking is a right, while bicycle parking is a privilege' - even tho the law requires such places to offer bicycle parking.
Previously, visitors had to leave their bikes outside the gate - despite the ample space inside. Recently, while we were visiting the cemetery, thieves stole one of Bogotá Bike Tours' bikes.
