SANT Llorenç Council has decided to link the municipality's most popular beaches in Sa Coma and Cala Millor with a near two kilometre long cycle track.

The project is going to cost nearly 120'000 euros and the local authority hopes that the new cycle lane will not only lead to less vehicles being used by holiday makers and residents to access the beaches in the area, it will also serve to promote the greater use of bicycles to get about the resorts in general.

Central government has pledged some financial aid and work is expected to get underway on laying the new cycle lane along the Avenidas de les Palmeres and Baladres, is due to get underway at the end of April and is scheduled to be completed within a period of three months. So, it could be open for August.

The project also includes the creation of a large bicycle parking lot near the beach where cyclists will be able to securely leave their bicycles.
The council is currently examining a number of plans to extend the cycle route after the summer holiday season.
