I didn't know that?! It's hard enough to find out the laws in the UK let alone Spain. Where did you find that info. Maybe there's other Spanish quirks I should know about...

I thought I was the only person who waved his left hand to indicate stopping. So good rules there that I agree with (and already adhere to)

My favourite hand signal is when the left or right arm is lowered straight down and the middle finger raised about an inch. The slight incline of the finger is the 'cool' way to signal that you are turning left or right.


I will have to give a copy of these laws to the policeman who regularly cycles the wrong way along the Formentor road.

Well, some cyclist profiles might be more attractive than others (this is not a commercial; just a point to indicate that the "luxury segment" of the cycling tour business could have a few redeeming facets):

TREK Bicycles; TREK Travel Luxury Tours; mallorca-luxury-bike-tour

https://trektravel.com/trip/mallorca-luxury-bike-tour/

Priced at US$1,000 per person per day, in the cases of some "destinations"!

I assume that price includes a 'driver'. Rickshaws or tandems?
