Description

Rex Burkholder and friend at ciclovia event

Enjoy the sunny feeling of open streets in the middle of January!

 

The original inspiration for Portland's Sunday Parkways, Ciclovias are growing rapidly in Latin America, with over 400 cities opening their streets every Sunday to people on foot, on skates and on bikes. Up to a million people ride in Bogota's Ciclovia every week. What do they know that we don't?
Hear from Rex Burkholder, Honorary Ambassador of the Network of Ciclovias Recreativas (CRA) since 2007. A founder of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, ex-Metro Councilor and community activist. Having recently returned from the 8th Congress of the CRA, Rex will share the triumphs and challenges of transforming cities into people friendly places in Latin America. His website is gettingto2100.org where he writes on issues of sustainability, cycling and hope.
