Bogota - Latin America's biking paradise

The Colombian capital, Bogota, is widely praised as the best Latin American city for cycling.

For the past 37 years the city's authorities have held car-free Sundays, when only pedestrians, skaters and cyclists are allowed in many of the capital's streets.

One in seven of Bogota's inhabitants uses the Ciclovia, or the bikeway.
