For it, they have organized themselves during the whole week, activities related to the ecological mobility, as well as walks and healthy breakfasts, and courses of road safety or of basic mechanics for bicycles. And to finish, yesterday there was a snack and share-out of gifts in the walk of La Concha to reward those who were following the advices.
