Cyclelogistics partner TXITA will cycle from San Sebastian to the Velo-City event in NantesA convoy of bicycles cycles all the way from San Sebastian to Nantes, to promote "Donostia 2016". The city of San Sebastian will be the cultural capital of the EU in 2016, and has chosen the bicycle as the official vehicle of the cultural capital year.
The convoy of bicycles set out last Friday (15th of May, nvdr ) from the 2016 Hub to Velo-city in Nantes to promote that San Sebastian will be the cultural capital of Europe in 2016. Velo-City, that takes place this year in Nantes, is one of the world's most important cycling planning conference. To reach the end destination, the group must cover 786 km, passing cities like Bayonne, Mimizan, Arcachon, Bordeaux and La Rochelle.
The journey is also a test for the coming year: under the flag of "Biziz", the cycling embassy will five convoys of bicycles travel from five European cities (Las Palmas, Athens, Christiania in Copenhagen, Konstanz and Kaliningrad) to San San Sebastian.
