Here in Galicia we like to think that we have everything that we need for cyclists. It isn’t just the cycling routes that we can organise, or the incredible variety of climbs. No, we also have incredible nature and beauty and a huge amount of safe traffic free roads. Added to that, the fabulous Galician gastronomy and Galicia’s incredible culture and history ensures a fantastic cycling holiday in Spain. So, what can make Galicia better as a destination for cycling tourists. Well, the imminent arrival of Cycling Friendly in Galicia. So, what is Cycling friendly?
Cycling Friendly in Galicia
Cycling Friendly is a company that was launched in Mallorca eight years ago, by three cycling friends. It is a community that provides information in many destinations for cyclotourists. Obviously, being a Mallorcan company they are strong at that island. Mallorca remains the principal destination for cyclotourists in Spain. However, times change, and it is clear now that other regions are becoming popular. Cycling Friendly has grown their network across the peninsula, out to the Canary Islands and into France. And soon, we will have Cycling Friendly in Galicia. So, how does it work, and what will it bring?
What is Cycling Friendly?
The purpose of Cycling Friendly is to direct cyclotourists towards facilities that actively encourage their presence. Hotels can sign up to the Cycling Friendly service and be provided with a substantial amount of material to help cyclists. Whole rooms, or basements are converted into storage sites, and mini workshops. Mechanics can be provided to help cyclists when they arrive. Every conceivable tool is provided for those who can repair their own bikes. Safe, locked facilities for your precious bike are standard. And above all, cyclotourists can arrive at their destination, knowing in advance that they are actively welcomed. So, get on the website, look at how it works, and keep your eye out on Galicia. It can only add to our appeal to have Cycling Friendly in Galicia.
