Ciclovia Hits North America

Back in February I posted a film about Ciclovia in Bogotá, Colombia. I wrote that several US cities were in the planning stages for their own car-free parkdays activity. Well, the first of those cities has launched their Ciclovia. Of course Portland, OR was the first US city up and running. Vancouver, BC had a car-free event that took place on Fathers Day. And New York City has announced that it will be closing streets starting August. Read about the NYC plan here, here and here.

when does Jacksonville get to do something like that?
Maybe I should move to Portland or Boulder CO or even Copenhagen!!!
