On yer bike
More than 300 people took part in Benidorm's Bike Day on Sunday morning – including mayor Toni Perez.
The target was to promote the extensive bicycle lane network in the town which will imminently be extended by a further 11km on the Levante side.
The project has been costed at €984,128, with a grant of €400,000 made available from EU Feder funds. This will bring the total bike lane route across Benidorm up to 80 kilometres and works are anticipated to commence next month.
Participants in Sunday’s ride gathered at the new Foietes park and comprised both adults and children who rode along both the Levante and Poniente promenade and finished back at the start point, a route of around 10km.
