Cycling on Seventh Ave.
The recent weeks have been great ones for Bogotá's Ciclovia, with sunny days and nary a drop of rain. (But the rainy season is nye....)
With the demolition of Seventh Ave.'s bridge over 26th St. as part of the TransMilenio expansion, the city incoprorated a detour onto Carrera 10. It's not perfect, but give the city credit for giving La Ciclovia its due importance. Building of the new bridge is supposed to take five months. Cross your fingers!
|La Ciclovia is not just for cyclists. Here, a bunch of skateboarders.|
|In the National Park, hundreds of people participate in public aerobics class, called 'La Recreovia.'|
|Aristobulo, who repairs bikes by the National Park.|

|Dogs get their exercise, too.|

|One of the nice things about Bogotá's Ciclovia is the number of kids out riding bikes. Hopefully, many will become lieftime cyclists.|
