A great day, to be sure.

It would be nice to see similiar closures rotated around the city during warmer months. (May through October seems reasonable... you could start with Doors Open and end with Halloween) to allow citizens to discover the vital role of neighbourhoods in their, you know, neighbourhoods. Maybe close a street for eight hours once a month in a different neighbourhood within each city ward.

Weekly would be the ideal, but you'd want that to be driven by adoption, not imposed from without. Part of the appeal of something like Ciclovia is that it's empowering, which makes it seem "of the people"... which is not without its political utility in a city like Bogotá with soaring unemployment figures.
