Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS - By Irena Bodnarec

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.
