|A scene on the Ave. Septima Ciclovia today.|
Does it really make sense to mobilize and pay the small army of police and Ciclovia monitors - who undoubtely would rather be with their families or still in bed - for the few who venture out on Christmas or New Year's Day? Couldn't the money do more for cycling spent a different way?
This is particularly true on a day when motorized traffic is extremely light, anyway, making closing roads to cars almost pointless.
|More police than cyclists on this stretch.|
|A lonely stretch of La Ciclovia today.|
|The Recrovia, free public aerobics, did get a turn-out.|
|Ave. Caracas this afternoon, almost bare of car and bus traffic. Why close down roads?|
