"SUNDAY SPORTS" Colombia Local Custom Tip by swesn

Colombia Local Customs: 27 reviews and 17 photos

I noticed that on Sundays, the various town councils would close several avenues and streets, or at least reduce several lanes of a major avenue and open up these free roads to cyclists, joggers and sports enthusiasts.

Once in Bogota, I actually saw a whole stage being set up with a huge group of people working out aerobics routines.

And the nicest thing is to observe many locals take advantage of this and spend a few hours keeping fit every Sunday.
