The Bogotá City Council now features this rather metallic Christmas tree laden with bicycles, which presumably will be given to lucky kids. But if the spirit is there, the reality is not always.
Two blocks from the council's building is one of the city's most anti-cyclist, and anti-pedestrian crossings, which often forces us to stop and wait three times, for the greater convenience of drivers. I've complaind about this to council members and cycling activists, but nothing changes.
