Exercise is essential to maintaining good health and it is more fun when you do it with family and friends. For those who like cycling and great views there is a new place to go, because every Sunday between 7:00 a.m. to midday, a special lane for bikes has been implemented from Panama Viejo to the Coastal Strip III, while the other lanes will remain open to normal traffic.
The new route will go from the Via Cincuentenario’s Visitor Center, passing Via Israel, Paitilla Bridge, Balboa Avenue, the Coastal Strip up to the Maracaná stadium. Along the way there will be different activities such as zumba, aerobics and yoga.
The aim of this event is to promote alternative forms of transport and family life. Along the road, the cycling lane is separated by cones and is under the surveillance of the Municipal Police, the National Police, the Transit Authority and the Fire Department.
The municipality of Panama is aiming to create more spaces for cyclists and at the same time create public awareness about alternative forms of transport besides motorized ones.
