First-Ever 'Oaklavia': 2 Miles of Oakland Streets Closed to Cars (Video)

Big Street Party in Oakland (Cars Not Welcome)
The Ciclovia concept is most closely associated with Bogotá, Colombia. The general idea is to temporarily close down some streets to cars and allow people to take over with various activities (cycling, walking, dancing, sports, music, etc...). Over the past few years, the idea has spread to many other cities all around the world, including Oakland, which held its first 'Oaklavia' by closing down 2 miles of streets on June 27th. It was a great success! Check out the video above. Via Streetfilms. See also: Velo-City's Awesome Bike Parade in Copenhagen (Video)
