Cyclists in São Paulo awake to find the city had built a wall in their bike lane

A treehugger exclusive from Our Man in Brazil dominated the site this week. There never was any explanation of why the strange wall was built, but the municipality took it down pretty quickly after the whole nation had fun with it. Best comment:

Also near the wall was an injured coyote and several empty boxes labelled "Acme".
