BENIDORM BY BIKE


In another post, we inform you that a network of cycle paths is being created in the natural area of 'El Moralet'. Well, by adding to this project, the Benidorm City Council intends to reconvert various streets and avenues of the city into 'cycle-routes'; With which it would reach 134 km of routes for cycling, becoming the second town in the Valencian Community (only behind Valencia capital) with the most routes for cycling, a healthy and practical means of transport. and sustainable.

The use of bicycles as a means of transport is becoming more and more common in Benidorm

This is stated in the 'Cycling Plan' presented last week by the Benidorm Mobility Advisory Council, which aims to promote sustainable mobility by promoting the use of bicycles as transport. Currently the city has 91.1 km between bike lanes, cycle paths and pedestrian areas where the use of bicycles is allowed.


Several of these transformations have already been carried out in various streets around Tossal de la Cala. As well as several roads have been pedestrianized and reconverted in the Levante area: in sections of Gerona, Derramador, Filipinas or Esperanto streets.

The area of La Cala and the surroundings of El Tossal have recently been renovated with a bike lane.

The Green Circuit of 'El Moralet', which is in full development, will contain 12.3 km of trails traced by the 'Cyclist Benidorm Union' and the 'Mountain Section'. These trails will be joined by the opening of new bike lanes in Poniente, a new access in 'Salto del Agua' and the redevelopment of Colombia avenue; as well as the creation of cycle paths in El Murtal avenue, Mallorca street or the next Vial Discotheques.

The rest of the kilometers would be completed with "the conversion into‘ cycle streets ’of various roads and avenues, mainly in the downtown area, La Cala and Rincón de Loix." This has been expressed by the councilor, José Ramón González de Zárate.

All this reconversion comes hand in hand thanks to the new speed limits within the city, allowing a greater coexistence between bicycles and vehicles.

Thanks to this new cycling network, a multitude of areas of the town will be more effectively connected, being able to practically travel the city of Benidorm from one end to the other while cycling.


In the last five years, Benidorm has gone from having 35.8 kilometers of cycle lanes, to the 91.1 kilometers that currently exist. And it is expected that by the end of the year it will reach 134.7 km of surface destined to such activity. Making it a much more sustainable and accessible city thanks to this new mobility plan.
