Conviva & CicloFaixa roll out more love!

When I visited São Paulo in 2010, it was a city screaming out for more love.

more love less cars 2

We all need more love, don't we?

And it seems like the love has finally arrived. Positive changes are afloat in South America's megalopolis! Enter Movimento Conviva and CicloFaixa - whose hope is to promote more harmony in São Paulo's streets, where cars still rule. CicloFaixa has made it possible for Paulistas who bike to own part of these streets, at least on Sundays and holidays, from 7 am to 4 pm, when people can cycle around a total of 149 km, with designated bike routes that pass through parks and nearby museums.

Conviva is the movement for pedestrians, drivers and bikers to coexist harmoniously. After all, all we really want is to get to our destinations safe and sound, so we can enjoy our lives.

But of course, on a bike it's not just about the destination, but the journey. Please enjoy this little video I made about CicloFaixa & Conviva, put the music of Chico Science & Nação Zumbi.



Happiness and harmony abound! Ding ding!
