Medellín Things to Do: 79 reviews and 174 photos

  Next to Caribe
by MalenaN

As in many other places in Colombia you will on Sundays see many people in , or outside, Medellín on a bicycle. On the photo you can see how a major road next to Caribe metro station has been closed for motor vehicles on a Sunday and it is taken over by cyclists, pedestrians and joggers. Also along the road to San Felix (outside Medellín) the bus passed many cyclists and as the road is mostly going uphill it is very good exercise.

      I think that it is great that they close some roads for motor traffic on Sundays, so that cyclists can safely and easy move around! They do the same in Quito, Ecuador.
