Thousands of cyclists gather annually to commemorate the death of four bikers in front of Walmart in Curridabat. This year they were joined by cyclists in Cartago, Guanacaste, and Limón.
Those in Curridabat had a moment of silence for the victims and then laid down on the road. This is so we will never forget the four lives lost there.
Those in Cartago made a large “1.5m” with their bodies, to remind drivers of the 1.5 meters of space needed between bikes and cars for safety.
Cyclists don’t ask for much, just respect and 1.5 meters of distance, the difference between life and death.
The cyclists’ show of support for the victims was impressive. They ask drivers to remember that cyclists are human beings and need to have safety on the roads.
