THE Institute for Tourism strategy in the Balearic Islands (Inestur) signed an agreement yesterday with Pollensa Town Council for the investment of 30'000 euros in setting up a series of routes in the district for cycling tours.

According to the regional ministry of Tourism, those who penned the document were the director general of Tourism administration and vice-president of Inestur, Josep Aloy; and the mayor of Pollensa, Joan Cerdá.

The Town Council is thereby committed to carrying out works to make by-ways suitable for cycling tourism and to expedite the necessary licenses for such works. The government, meanwhile, will make the 30'000 euros available as funding.

It has been a recent policy of the Islands' government under the leadership of the Popular Party, to develop and expand cycle routes in the Balearics. The move comes as part of a wider agenda to encourage forms of tourism which offer alternatives to traditional sun, sea and sand packages.

From a safety standpoint, the government suggests that using already-existing, and refurbished cross-country tracks, will be preferable to cyclists using major highways.
