PILAR de la Horadadahas joined the national network of 500 bicycle friendly towns (Red de Ciudadespor la Bicicleta – RCxB).

Over 100 cyclists of all ages took part in a bike ride around the municipality which was organised by the Town Hall.

The route took the cyclists from the church square to the watchtower and back again.

The route forms part of a growing network of cycle paths in the municipality that the town hall said it intends to extend even further.

The day, entitled ‘One bike more, one car less’ followed with a series of cycling-related events, including a road safety presentation from the Policia Local and maintenance workshops at local cycling stores.

The town has also joined the ‘Biciregistro’ bicycle registration system, designed to make it easier to identify lost and stolen bikes.

To encourage people to register with Biciregistro, there will be a raffle on October 15 to win one of three €100 vouchers to spend at local cycling stores.

To be in with a chance of winning, register your bicycle via and notify the Tourism Office before October 15.
