Huffinton Post's Joel Epstein

Joel Epstein writes quite a bit about cicLAvia at an article entitled Public Space = Public Health in yesterday’s Huffington Post.  The article draws some very apt parallels between Bogotá, where Ciclovía got its start, and Los Angeles, where it’s gonna take off like a great idea often does. Below is an excerpt, follow link to read the rest.

Given the success of the program in Bogotá the concept has spread to Mexico City and Guadalajara, Mexico; Santiago, Chile; Quito, Ecuador and in the US to El Paso, Portland, Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Miami.

In a city with many neighborhoods starved for public space and parks, CicLAvia promotes a creative way to make over LA, at least for a few hours a week.

Note: Epstein is slightly premature in referencing cicLAvia’s foray into the GOOD/Pepsi contest… look for our upcoming announcement when voting starts next Monday!
