Still-Leben – a 37-mile long German Ciclovía
Reuters reports that three million people took part in a 60km-long ciclovía event held on a German Autobahn. That’s about 37 U.S. miles long! The event was called “Still-Leben” which is German for “Still Life.” Below is an article excerpt, read the full story here.
Some 20,000 tables were set up on the motorway for what organizers called “the longest banquet in the world.” They said three million people had taken part.
Television pictures from the air showed crowds milling around on a road where cars usually race along at speeds of 160 kph (100 mph) or more.
Hannelore Kraft, state premier of North Rhine-Westphalia state, was among the revelers. She rode a bicycle and said the event should be repeated.
