Car-Free Day in Bogotá

A group of cyclists, mostly from the Universidad Central, on Ave. Septima.

Today wa Bogotá's annual Car-Free Day. Mayor Gustavo Petro gave the day a novel emphasis on bicycling by cycling to work himself, and creating a temporary bike lane on Ave. Septima and a Sunday-style Ciclovia on 26th St. 

But, while I saw more cyclists than normal, the two-wheeled turn-out seemed a bit underwhelming. 

A cycling poster that appeared today. 'I'll meet you pedaling over there. Let's hope they leave us our own lane.'
Cyclists make good use of the temporary bike lane on Ave. Septima. A good idea which should last. 

Cyclists on 26th Street, which was turned into a Sunday-style Ciclovia. But the turnout looked a little lonely. 

'Slow or with space?' A poster advertises car-free day. 
Exito supermarkets gets into it.
