The Bicipalma cycle scheme in Palma has been an incredible success
The Bicipalma cycle scheme in Palma has been an incredible success. Not only have all the 5000 available places on it been snapped up, but also another 6000
people are now on the waiting list to join!
The blue white and green bikes – there are 336 of them in 28 bike stations around the city – are now a common sight on the streets and bike lanes of Palma with around 1300 to 1500 people a day
using them. Most people seem to be using them for getting to work, as the usage drops significantly at weekends.
The council are obviously pleased that the bikes are being used so much – their intention is to reduce pollution and help people become fitter – and are now investigating how the bikes are used
among the 5000 people on the scheme with a view to increasing the membership.
