What amazed me was a large city's ability to completely shut down a main artery to allow it's locals a little exercise and socialization. The funny part is that technically, it ends at 2PM, but people just take over the Septimo and it becomes even more of a street party afterwards. Another must-do in Bogota.

Every sunday morning you can enjoy hundreds of km of free avenues to ride your bicycle, rollerbaldes, walk or run. From 7am to 2pm.

My friends and I walked on the Ciclovia for about fifty blocks and ended at the Usaquen market. It was a long trip, but we had the perfect excuse to take a taxi home since our hands were filled with artisanal items bought from the market. I loved seeing all the families and fit Colombians enjoying a not-so-lazy Sunday!

We rented bikes from Bogota Bike Tours. The rental was $7000 pesos per bike per hour (currently is about $2.50/hr) It's every Sunday from 7a-2p. Major streets throughout city are completely or partially closed to cars. The main road that is shut down is very flat allowing for an easy ride. Because of that people of all ages, bike riding...

It's great that there are extra lanes for bikes on Sunday, but there are still buses and taxis, and lots of walkers in the bike lanes.

So Sundays are ciclovia days were the city shuts down certain routes to cars and allows them to be bicycle only. We rented bikes from our hostel and rode around the city for the morning and had a blast. Great way to explore the town and get your bearings... and burn off all those churros.

We lived here almost thirty years ago and loved that the city would close a major road so that everyone could safely exercise on a Sunday morning. I ran here after a 30-year hiatus on a beautiful day. There are still tens of thousands of people coming out. I wasn't with my running club, but I had no end of... More

This is such a cool idea and I hope it catches on in more cities across the world. There were so many interesting street performers and activities to see and it was all free! If you are in Bogota on a Sunday you should not miss the Ciclovia.
