Still Life

An estimated 3 million people (1 million on bikes!) attended a 37-mile closure of Germany’s high-speed autobahn network this past weekend. The event, appropriately titled “Still Life”, was a celebration of the Ruhr region being chosen as a “European Capital of Culture” by the European Union. Approximately 22,000 tables were set up, which has to qualify the event as the world’s largest picnic. It must have been quite a sight, seeing such a long stretch of high-speed roadway filled with pedestrians and bicyclists.
