Our school has just got a very useful and convenient bike repair station that we’ve just set up in the chapel, the school indoor playground. Thanks, Juan Luis Echarri, Chifly, for making this awesome bike repair station. BTW, he took a dog poop bag dispenser (see below) and turned it into an amazing bike repair […]
Biciclistas de Corella News
Last Sunday we had three very special passengers in our two trishaws: Ramón (Juan Luis’ uncle), Lilian and Margot. Not surprisingly, our wonderful passengers chose «La Estanca» for our trishaw ride. We are looking forward to the next trishaw ride with these super-nice people!
Our favourite mechanic and Jack-of-all-trades, Juan Luis Echarri, has just painted our van with new topics, CWA Navarra included. Thanks, our restless handiman, for your key, constant and creative contribution to our Erasmus project.
Yesterday, August 2nd, we went on a trishaw ride with two extraordinary kids, Marta and Marcos. They have Down Syndrome and are so full of beans… Mila, Javier, Adrián and Juan Luis were the pilots. We went to Estanca and Paretón. They loved the views and made non-stop jokes. They get along very well and […]
Cristina Gallo, our favourite designer and Jack of all trades, was interviewed on Monday, July 27, by Arturo Téllez in Onda Cero Radio Station. Along with Granada and Melilla, Corella was chosen to start a series of interviews on cities that aim at getting a more sustainable mobility. Cristina explained our Erasmus project and, surprisingly […]
We had a meeting and training session with thirteen CWA pilots on Monday, July 20. We explained and discussed the safety measures in the Covid-19 era, the requirements to start a trishaw ride, and so forth. BTW, we are not allowed to take residents from Hogar San José and we’ll give rides only to elders […]

On Friday Cristina Gallo and Toño Peña gave theoretical and practical training to ten members, half of them youngsters, of Seeking Smiles. On Saturday there were many events to launch the twelfth chapter of «Cycling Without Age» in Spain, […]
Tamara Pérez, member of «Buscando sonrisas» (Finding Smiles), visited our small town on Saturday, July 11 with two clear objectives: to learn as much as posible about CWA and to get in contact with our chapter in Corella. Tamara drove more than three hours from Santander but the experience was absolutely worth it: «It’s been […]
We’ve set a transparent screen to keep pilots and elders apart and safe in these weird times. Of course, when we resume CWA rides we’ll clean the tricycles thoroughly before and after every ride, pilots will wash their hands with hydrogel and everybody (pilots, elders and volunteers) will use masks. BTW, we thank Juan Luis, […]
We proposed our town council one month ago to arrange a meeting with associations, schools and the health centre to tackle Covid-19-related issues, sustainable mobility included. The meeting took place on June 15 and dealt just with our mobility proposals. Eleven people, plus three biciclistas (Cristina Gallo, Juan Luis Echarri and Toño Peña) participated. We […]
