OÑATI. DV. Txirrinka, the association that groups those who request the adoption of public performances in favor of the bicycle like way of daily transport and vehicle for the free time for ecological reasons and of health, lifts the voice again. They want that the different institutions (Town hall, Union and Delegation) assume, once and for all, the need for network of bidegorris of the region, «bearing in mind that in the past municipal and statutory May elections almost all the parties proved to be partial to this type of performances».

«Our target - they tell from the association - is to carry out the march in festive tone, but simultaneously avenging. In Oñati, and in the region, the conditions do not happen adapted to walk with a dignity minimum in bicycle, and this is what we stay to demonstrate in this march».

From the group they remember that the whole trip between Oñati and Devastate you it will be realized by the highway, «precisely because there is no another way of doing it in conditions. Ours intention is that in next editions this march could be done across bidegorris, without need to go out to the general highway».

The march will divide of the Oñati square the 15.00 with direction to Devastate, where it will realize an urban trip before returning to Oñati you. The idea is to depart from the locality cerrajera towards the 17.00 and to come to the destination point towards the 19.00, where one will serve a snack to all those who have taken part in the march.

In 2008 a key year

Although Oñati was the first municipality of the territory in realizing a global study on cycle mobility, the implantation of the network of bidegorris is at present in waiting compass.

An external consultant put the Delegation two years ago at the disposal of the Consistory that, along with representatives of the Corporation and different socio-economic and cultural groups like the members of Txirrinka, Txanda, the school centers or the innkeepers realized an initial definition of the project, designed planned etc, the network bidegorris. It was a question of something similar to what happened already with the accessibility plan in march: first a study was done with the participation of the groups and agents involved in the one that suggestions gathered, surveys were carried out, they designed tracings to themselves and the demanded economic and financial studies were carried out, specifying the calendar and the annual budget necessary to carry out them.

Of that already two years ago and it remains to say that the rhythm of creation of the rails bike is not so rapid as the fans of the bike would want. There is still none in the town. In the Corporation they make sure that a technician specializing in cycle mobility is working the project oñatiarra and that his intention is to assign important games for this chapter them next four years.

Precisely, the last plenary meeting of the corporation treated the topic of the bidegorris, on having presented to him the Sectorial Territorial Plan that shows the network of not motorized routes that the Statutory Delegation tries to construct the length and breadth of Gipuzkoa.

The hanging work is still great to complete the granes planned plans and they will happen still several years before all these projects turn in fact, it is that's why therefore the Corporation decided to request to the Delegation that the stretch between Zubillaga and San Prudencio (following the ancient Navarrese Basque railroad) includes it between the priority performances.

Change of chip

From the 60s, in most of the countries of the south of Europe, the bicycle was relegated to play a marginal role as displacement way, limiting itself to being a toy for children or a tool for the sports practice of the cycling.

This fact was basically a consequence of the massive irruption of the motorcar in the streets and highways, with the consequent increase of the road insecurity for the cyclists, and the starting of territorial politics that generated an increase of the needs for displacement and for the average lengths of the trajectories.

Nevertheless, at the beginning of the nineties this slope of the bicycle begun being invested. The work developed by some organizations in favor of his promotion and the increase of the environmental sensitization between wide social sectors there have been factors that have helped to impel his use as way of urban transport and vehicle for the free time and the tourism. Txirrinka takes years being employed at this line and on having seen the existing "inpass" has decided to organize this avenging-festive march on the 20th.
