WCD: Curitiba

bicicletadaCuritiba had a fast paced, but carfree September. The Brazilian city started out on the right foot, with a Commuter’s Challenge. This year’s edition of the multimodal race included a helicopter and a car, but the bicycle once again came out the fastest, cheapest and cleanest. The Federal University hosted a week-long seminar for participants ranging from architects to anthropologists, discussing the city’s mobility issues. On weekends, Grupo Transporte Humano supported free bike workshops in public parks and private garages. Entertainment on WCD included live music at different crossroads, a fashion parade by Curitiba Cycle Chic and, of course, a successful Critical Mass ride.
