Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Fiesta de la Bicicleta en Benalmadena Next Sunday the 22nd April, Benalmadena will host the 35th edition of its popular ‘Fiesta de la Bicicleta’ or Bicycle Party, one of the city’s oldest and most emblematic events in its busy sports calendar.

It’s not a race. The whole event is designed to be a fun family day out, fitting in perfectly with Benalmadena’s image as an idyllic destination for tourism and sports.

At the event’s press conference the mayor of Benalmadena, Victor Navas, pointed out that he and his team have made a strong commitment to promoting the city as the perfect destination for sports and tourism. There are now firm plans (the project goes out to tender this year) to create a cycle lane which will run from Torrequebrada to Carvajal along the old N-340 coast road; an amazing addition to Benalmadena’s tourist infrastructure which will help attract new visitors looking for a more active holiday mixed with the superb weather we enjoy in this wonderful part of Spain.
