Bicycle Event, World Car Free Day

World Car Free Day, Guatemala.
I was very impressed by the amount of people who showed up.
This time, I’ll let photos speak for themselves.
I rode from my house in Villa Nueva, a good 10.8 miles to the event, plus a 5 miles loop we did around downtown Guatemala and back to Campo de Marte, and I rode back to my house.
Campo Marte is accessible on a short 30-45 minutes bicycle ride from any of Guatemala City’s Zones and some people showed up driving their motor vehicles with the bike mounted. Come on! It was an event to encourage you to ride your bike to it. Failed!
Besides that, everything was great. I felt an amazing sense of camaraderie.

    Wow, looks like it was a great event ! I love the wooden and bamboo rides. Keep up the good job. Can I suggest a ” before” and after” series of popular places around la capirucha. Or how about a series on rock clubs?

      Hello NYChapin. there are not many rock bars and night clubs in Guatemala City. The people I met at an autograph signing tell me there are only two and one of the most famous rock places closed for business a few years ago.. but I’ll go check’em up sometime soon and I’ll share those photos.
