Christmas lights for paying tribute to the victims of the attack in Barcelona

November 21st, 2017

This year, 2017, the Christmas lights take on a new meaning. The City Hall of Barcelona has decided that this illumination will start on the 23rd of November at 7 p.m. in a very specific place, La Rambla de Santa Mònica.

If, until now, the Christmas lights disguised the beginning of the campaign of these dates, this time, they will be used in order to pay tribute to the victims of the 17th of August attack. In addition, they pretend to pay homage to the Rambla’s shopkeepers in gratitude for their responses and for their generosity.

For this reason, this year, the illumination will include the dove of peace, symbolizing what represents the day of the attack and the next days, when the people of Barcelona and a lot of other people return to open the Ramblas with the motto of “No tenim por” -We are not afraid-.

Remember, if you want to participate in this act of solidarity, go to the Rambla Santa Mònica on the 23rd of November at 7 p.m.

We are not afraid in Barcelona

August 26th, 2017

A week has already passed since the terrible acts in the Rambla of Barcelona, although we only needed a few hours to recover this place and show that we are not afraid in any sense.

Tomorrow, Saturday, the 26th of August, the streets of Barcelona are going to be full of people from different places in order to show the whole world that we are not afraid. This is something that we have done all week through the different intercultural events, which honor all victims of the entire terrorist attacks.

We love Barcelona for always being open to the world, something that will not change thanks to all the people who live here and who make it a welcome place for everyone.

Tomorrow we will give support, as many other people in the world, to the call of “We are not afraid”, because by getting all these people together, we feel more empowered to share our culture of peace.

Take part in this solidary action through the bicycle in Barcelona

November 15th, 2016

Do you have any plans for this weekend? If you have a Brompton folding bicycle and 15 euros saved, take a look at this initiative to collect money for the Movember Foundation at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit. 

Some months ago, we talked about the curious Brompton World Championship, which will again be celebrated on the 22nd of April this coming year within the BiCircuit Festival frame. In the same line, this Saturday, the 19th of November, the Solidary Vermouth with Brompton will be celebrated.

At 12.30 p.m. participants, with their Brompton being ready, will meet at the Circuit and at 13 p.m. the lap around the circuit will start. After enjoying the pedaling over the asphalt track, all the participants will be able to recharge batteries with a luxury vermouth at the Privilege Corner building.

So, now you know that, if you don’t have any plans for this weekend yet and you are close to Barcelona, don’t doubt about signing up for this solidary action and training for the next Brompton World Championship.
