TO CYCLE OR NOT TO CYCLE
Madrid will provide 1,500 electric bicycles in its first public bike-hire scheme from May 1. For the first time on record, bicycles have outsold cars in Spain. This plan was adopted in 2009. But as the economic problems in Spain grew it was already once postponed and is now indefinitely postponed. Better said; the whole plan is axed. Also the announced increase in the number of bicycle lanes in the city is for the biggest part stopped.
