Life in the Bicycle Lane

Mallorca is a bit of a dream for cyclists. The island’s geography offers everything for the bicycle lovers, from the easy country lanes of the Pla de Mallorca to the taxing mountain roads of the Serra de Tramuntana, and from the leisurely promenades of the Platja de Palma to the serpentines of the road to Sa Calobra.

The Govern de les Illes Balears has launched a programme called Cicloturismo which offers various pleasant bicycle tours throughout the island of Mallorca (see here for more information).  

But people in Palma want more. The group of cyclists shown here is staging a once-a-month demonstration in Plaça Espanya on the first Thursday of every month, demanding specially assigned bicycle lanes in central Palma, all in the name of road safety and accident prevention. A good thing, one would have thought.

By the way, today marks the fifth and last stage of the XXIV. Trofeu Ciclista Pla de Mallorca, in and around Sineu. 

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 5th, 2008. The time was 20:11:41.
