"On a Sunday morning, a #cyclist rode on the Minhocão, an elevated highway in São Paulo that is closed to cars on weekday evenings and Sundays. For decades, the authorities transformed this Brazilian megacity into a case study of dystopian sprawl, razing tree-lined plazas, demolishing architectural gems and and blighting wide swaths with the #Minhocão. But now, with bicycle lanes and corridors for buses, expanded sidewalks and lowered speed limits, the mayor of São Paulo is challenging the power of the automobile.
