PEOPLE GETTING ON THEIR BIKES

As petrol prices continue to rise and traffic jams get longer and longer in Malaga city, an increasing number of people are getting on their bikes. Bicycle sales have risen throughout the province by 30% over the past 12 months and the latest study by Malaga City Hall’s mobility department shows that the number of cars using the city’s main roads and avenues has also dropped. Malaga’s bus company, the EMT, estimates that 1,500 people now cycle to work every day, and cyclists are calling for more bicycle lanes from the outlying areas to the city centre. One cyclist reports that car drivers no longer blow the horns at him as much as before: “They’re becoming more tolerant of cyclists.”
