Carfree Ciclovia in Colombia

Earlier this year I posted about how Ode Magazine reported that The Happy Planet Index, a project of the New Economics Foundation, ranked Colombia as the 2nd happiest place for the planet.

Because my hubs is from Colombia, I like to keep up with the positive Colombia stories, so I wanted to share this 9-minute online video, Ciclovia: Bogotá, Colombia by StreetFilms. On Sundays and major holidays, the main streets in Bogotá are closed down from 7AM-2 PM for cyclists, runners, skaters and walkers to enjoy.

If you are reading this through a feed reader and don't see the video, click through to the original post.

Hat tip to Carfree USA Blog for the story.

    This video almost made me cry. I lived in Colombia in a very difficult time (1998) -- it's beautiful to see so much happiness and creativity flourishing in the city. Of course exercise makes everyone more tolerant! Viva Colombia!
