November's La Bicicletada

Cyclists ready to go!
For the last two years, students from Bogotá's Universidad Central have been organizing these monthly bicicletadas around various parts of central Bogotá. Their purpose is to have fun, see the city and encourage bicycle use, especially bicycle commuting. The last-Friday-of-the-month rides are open to students from all universities. The organizers told me they've motivated at least a few students to dust off their two-wheelers and head to school on them. Still, only a few dozen Central University students bike to school.

Today's ride, on bikes from Bogotá Bike Tours, visited the National Museum, Independence Park and the National Library.
