Day of the Bicycle - Rojales

Today is "The day of the bicycle" in Rojales, over 200 cyclists from very young to senior citizens met up in Rojales to celebrate the day. Everyone set off on a 10 kilometre circular ride around the district, the route taking in Benijofar, Cuidad Quesada and surrounding countryside, with regular stops for snacks and ice cold drinks. The ride was taken at a nice sedate pace with lead cars of the police stopping traffic and a loudspeaker car playing music and giving instructions throughout the ride. On return to Rojales, more refreshments, free gifts of T shirts caps and hats were given out and there was a draw for some great prizes. The event was well sponsored by local companies and banks.
