Día del Pedal Marbella
This year’s Día del Pedal event took place on Sunday 1st October with participants meeting on the terraces above the Plaza del Mar in Marbella. It is always very popular and MarbellaAzul.com were of course there to bring you some great images.
A beautiful autumn day welcomed everyone as they arrived early on Sunday morning to register and obtain their T-shirt. Music accompanied them as they put on their shirts and limbered up in preparation for the ride with children of all ages, accompanied by their parents and friends, looking forward to this family friendly event.
About 1,100 riders set off from the inflated Marbella arch just after 10.30 after a badly parked car was removed. by our wonderful local police. Spectators and riders joined in the countdown and with a rapturous applause, they set off on their journey.
Día del Pedal Marbella 2016
A beautiful September morning and a clear blue Marbella sky welcomed the cyclists to this year’s Día del Pedal at the Plaza del Mar terraces on Sunday. MarbellaAzul.com was of course there to bring you the news and images.
DJ music helped build the atmosphere for this wonderful event as participants registered and received their water bottles and nicely designed T-Shirts. It’s important to remember that this is not a race. It’s just a good reason to get together for a cycle ride around Marbella that is available to everyone. This year, a special circuit was set up at the Plaza del Mar’s entrance by the Ayuntamiento and the Association CADI for children and adults to try out the specially adapted bikes and handbikes.
Everyone had a great time here, whether able bodied or not. Even Marbella’s mayor José Bernal tried out one of the handbikes and suggested it was “harder than it looks”. These bikes are amazing and they allow all children to participate in this sport.
It was then time for the participants to head for the arch where their journey through Marbella would start. Another great Día del Pedal and as usual a great atmosphere.
Día del Pedal Marbella 2015
Organized by Bycivic and the Delegación de Deportes Marbella, the Día del Pedal took place here in Marbella on Sunday 20 September 2015.
The meeting point was again on the terraces above the Plaza del Mar in Central Marbella and MarbellaAzul.com was of course there to soak up the atmosphere and bring you some outstanding images. This event has become extremely popular and this year’s Dia del Pedal certainly didn’t disappoint. There were literally hundreds of participants on bikes of all shapes and sizes. There were competitors of all ages, with some hilarious costumes and coloured wigs – as you will see below.
The organizers made it very clear that this is a fun ride (not a competition) and everyone should look out for everyone else during the journey. We hope you enjoy our images as much as we enjoyed the day!!!
