Cycling does seem to be the source of certain conflicts. In Bunyola, and specifically its main square, the issue is with the sheer number of bikes that are parked. They can make things difficult for pedestrians.
The town hall has installed a rack for bikes, but many cyclists leave their bikes in any corner of the square, next to trees or benches or simply in the way. Given this "invasion", the town hall is looking at fining cyclists who don't put their bikes where they are supposed to. It prefers to take a more softly approach, certainly initially, by pointing out to cyclists how they should park their bikes, but fines could well be introduced.
The thought of installing another rack behind the Sant Mateu Church has been dropped because cyclists want to be able to have their bikes in sight while they are taking refreshment in the square. The town hall insists that if everyone used the bike stand by the square, there wouldn't be a problem.
