|I saw many more bicyclists than on an ordinary day.|
These are riding on the bike lane on Ave. Septima.
Buses moved considerably faster and both TransMilenio and SITP buses carried more passengers.

Bogotá environmental officials reported that the number of cyclists sextupled today. I'd take that statistic with a grain of salt, but numbers did rise.
|The city created a temporary bike lane along the length of Ave. Septima - it should be there every day. These costumed bicyclists found the new lane useful.|
|TransMilenio buses were packed.|
|But SITP buses were, as always, almost empty.|
|Not just cyclists - skateboarders also used the bike lanes.|
