    What is a Cyclovia?

    Cyc˙lo˙via (/ˌsklɵˈv.ə/) n.
    A Spanish word signifying the temporary closure of a network of streets to cars so that they become “open” to  people. During Cyclovia anyone can bike, walk, skate and participate in fun, free activities.

    One of the first and largest cyclovias in the world is held in Bogotá, Colombia.  Every Sunday and holiday, every week of the year, the city closes down over 70 miles of roadways to cars to invite people to bike, walk, talk, exercise, picnic, sunbathe, etc. in the streets.  People from all backgrounds come together in this beautiful community-inspiring event.
