Huntsville Ciclovía!

In Bogota, Colombia the city pretty much shuts down a large portion of its nicer street areas to vehicle traffic almost every Sunday and holiday to allow for an event called "Ciclovía" where tons of people come out to run, bike, walk, etc. One of my first weekends there I went to check it out, and I was surprised how much participation there was.

Consider closing lanes on Whitesburg all the way to Weatherly Road, then close two lanes of Weatherly, to Todd Mill, and connect up to the Aldridge Greenway.
