In January the Department of Territories of the Generalitat de Catalunya made the information of the Barómetro de la Bicicleta (Bicycle Barometer) public, showing that 450.000 of the people in Catalonia daily move around with their bicycles, number which has maintained itself stable since 2011 and which has doubled itself compared to 2006.
450.000 of the people in Catalonia love pedalling to their job every day, a number which has maintained itself in the majority of the cities and which has increased 11.5% in Barcelona. With our strong legs, knowing the pleasure of moving around by this means of transport to our destination and being aware of the personal satisfaction which the fact of pedalling the bike every day means, how could we stop doing this during the vacation?
Whoever rides the bicycle daily doesn’t do that only to go from one place to another. Besides being pleasurable, we also contribute to an improvement of our environment. Everything is advantages which we can continue enjoying during our vacation. We can discover new cities going through their streets faster than walking, saving time, but without missing little details, as would happen if we travelled by car or by public transport while we contribute to a responsible ecotourism which get us closer to the people who live in this city.
During the summer, don’t park your bicycle. With it you can enjoy yourself much more.
