This next Saturday, the 22nd of October, a pedaling through Avinguda Meridiana will be celebrated. It will be organized by the platform Som Meridiana with the support of the Catalonia Bicycle Club (BACC) and they will claim for a space, which is now completely invaded by the motor vehicles.
Som Meridiana is a platform formed by different neighborhood associations, that are from some of the neighborhoods which involve this avenue and who, this weekend, riding their bicycles, will claim for a Meridiana:
Which is not a highway.
Which prioritizes (the) public transport and, of course, the bicycle.
Which is a more human place, with green zones and more facilities for the neighborhood shops.
Which is not a wall.
In general, they claim for stopping to be a “forgotten city” and they will do that with a day of reflection, which will be initiated at 9.30 a.m. with a popular bicycle tour called “pedaling the Meridiana”, organized by the BACC. The meeting point will the Plaça de les Glòries and the final point the Jardins d’Elx. At this point, a parade with Batukadas, Giants and Devils will take place and the celebration will continue with activities for the kids and hot chocolate. In addition, from 11.15 a.m. to 1 p.m. there will be a lot of talks about environment and alternative means of transport.
Don’t miss it and give your support on your bicycle!
