The Bogota's Ciclovia, open from 7 am until about 2 pm every Sunday, is a real treat. I mean, its 74 miles (120 km) of car-free bliss to walk, run or bike to your heart's content. As a big plus, you are going to enjoy the sweet sight of thousands of beautiful Colombian women happily passing by in shorts, tights... More

Bogota's ciclovias are one of the most progressive concepts in urban living. Every weekend, major thoroughfares close to vehicular traffic and yield space to pedestrians, cyclists, dog walkers, joggers, babies in strollers, and hand-holding lovers. It is great to walk for kilometers on end without any worry about cars. Ciclovias let people reclaim roads in traffic-crazed Bogota, albeit briefly for... More

We had planned on renting bikes and participating in Ciclovia, but instead we walked around and enjoyed the "event." What a great concept! We took in the sights (and peacefulness) of the bikers, walkers, dog-walkers, etc. Lots of street vendors too, so we enjoyed some delicious fresh fruits. Wish they had this in most major cities in the US!

I won't lie and say that I have ridden a bicycle when the streets are closed down on Sundays creating the ciclovia, but I must admit that it goes to show that Bogota is a city where health matters. Its nice to see families with little ones riding their bikes and roller blading. Great to see.

I wish more cities had this. On Sundays and other special occasions the city closes some major thoroughfares so people can bike safely. It is so much fun! And, so well organized. Plenty of places to stop for repairs if needed, drink and food. It is a great way to know the city.

Seemed really strange to see a major road in a city full of cyclists, walkers, joggers and dog walkers but with the street vendors and everyone in sports clothing it is fantastic fun.

Whether you visit the city for business or just for fun, you definitely have to go to the Ciclovia, it's not about riding a bike I think that is some show of support to this cultural cause, that it's now a tradition! Good for bogota!

We are pleased to see how supported biking is here. There is a well developed network of dedicated bike lanes in the city and they are well used. In addition every Sunday the city closes 70 miles of streets and they are filled with bikers and walkers. Wonderful friendly dimension to this sprawling city.

Main roads are closed for bikers, joggers, walkers, dog-walkers, roller-bladers....etc. every Sunday and on holidays from 7 am - 2 pm. This offers a nice safe way for you to enjoy riding your bike through the city without worrying about traffic or where the bike paths are.
