An article in the Feb. 11th issue of Gil Penalosa's newsletter, Parks, Greenways, Trails, Great Places to Walk & Bike & Read asks, "Do you want to get hundreds of thousands physically active, walking and bicycling? Using the infrastructure that you already have? No need of capital investment, just operational budget, political will (guts), and community engagement is needed. It works just as well in a city of 50,000 people than in one of 10 million, anywhere in the world. It is CAR FREE SUNDAYS.
From Street Films director/producer Clarence Eckerson:"Imagine 1.8 million people using 70+ miles of car-free streets to run, bike, walk every Sunday? Well, in Bogota, Colombia they do exactly that during CICLOVIA!'"
