Central and South America cycling infrastructure


Mostly promenades and boulevards (Avenidas), but otherwise limited connecting infrastructure. Many places with bicycle parking, including public institutions such as ministries or galleries. Good segregated path going through Callao neighborhood. Many serenazgos (neighborhood security officers) use bicycles. Except for heavy traffic roads, cyclists have good opportunities to cycle in the calm streets with slow, local traffic. Lima has potential to create bicycle paths crossing city through the existing green corridors, some such paths already exist in parks or green areas

São Paulo

The automobile city of Brazil. But also in support of recreational bicycle use as evidenced by CicloFaixa (22,5 kms), the Sunday and holiday lane closure for cyclists only from 7:00 to 16:00. The limited bicycles paths exist in some districts along Avenidas and some bicycle infrastructure is available in the center.

Cargo bicycles are very popular way to transport various goods around.
