The Municipality of Montes de Oca put at the service of the neighbors of the East Zone a bicycle lane. It has a distance of 21.5 kilometers, which includes and joins the cantons of San José, Desamparados and Montes de Oca. This infrastructure achievement has allowed many people to travel to their jobs, studies or personal commitments by bicycle in a safer way while encouraging physical activity.
Benefits of bicycle lanes
Bicycle lane impact
In the East Zone, cyclists have two options for sustainable mobility: bicycle lanes and a shared lane, which has a graphic that informs drivers that they must share the lane with us cyclists. With these two lanes I feel safe while I practice cycling as a sport, but I also meet people who go to work and school by bicycle.
In recent years, bicycle transport has increased and the arrival of the pandemic boosted it even more. Hundreds of people work by bike delivering orders, commute to work and many more go out to run errands or recreate in their neighborhoods. In order to meet this growing demand, and in line with the objectives of the project, Ciclovía al Este was born, which arrives to make all this possible.
If you are a resident of this area, enjoy and take advantage of the bike lane!
