The march was also aimed at denouncing the recklessness of some drivers and raising awareness about the hundreds of deaths which occur due to traffic accidents of fellow cyclists yearly.
"It's your lack of respect that's vulgar". "Obscene traffic", "Out of cars" and "Your haste is worth a life" were some of the slogans painted on the protestors' bodies.
"The drivers don't respect cyclists; in recent years the death toll has been growing and that's why I cam here today," said one of them, a 45-year-old saleswoman.
In Sao Paolo alone, 37 cyclists died in 2017, a 23.3% increase compared to the previous year.
