No, because it was the arrival of the participants in the Morocco/Andalucia, Trans-Mediterranean bike route.
The Mayor, Sra Trinidad Herrera, welcomed the 21 participants to the town and invited them to take the time to look around Almuñécar until their departure today, Sunday the 17th .
This visit was fruit of a deal struck between the Town Hall and the private company, Morocco Riders, with the backing of the local bikers club, Tiburones.
On the North African side of the Med, the bikers’ route took in the Almuñécar twinned town, Alhucemas, as the starting point, and Almuñécar as the finishing point, after having visited Andalusian towns along the way.
This was the first time that the event has been held, so it is hoped that in coming years more towns in Morocco and Andalucia can be included in the route.
