On November 24th wednesday , from 13:00 to 14:00, the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg organised together with the partner company MTSpain- Advisor of “Living in Spain” (legal, home, insurance, banks) a webinar on “Bikesperience, routes, live and work in Andalusia (Malaga and Almeria)”. Antonio Jesús Reina from Turismo Andaluz, Heather Cooper (Hike + Bike), Milagros Granizo Muñoz (MTSpain), Maryna Yatsenyuk (Caixabank), Max Van Gorkom (Claire Joster), Cindy Rowe (Tiberghien) and finally, Gilbert Van Fraeyenhoven (Baguet Bicycle Center).
Due to the current situation of COVID-19, more and more people are interested in making the most of the possibility of having a balance between work and the quality of life that Andalusia offers, especially for those who love cycling, sun and open spaces. Thanks to the facilities offered by digitalisation, many Europeans, including Belgians and Luxembourgers, have shown interest in opting for a second home in Andalusia.
During the webinar, the main cycling routes that exist in Malaga and Almeria were exposed and the possibilities they offer for MTB, leisure, e-bike or hiking among others. Then they mentioned the services and facilities offered both financial and non-financial for people who want to work from Spain, taking into account the existing cultural differences exposed from personal experiences.
Among the doubts clarified in the webinar, there were issues related to the purchase of second homes, the most difficult and interesting routes for cycling enthusiasts or issues that may affect cycling groups located in Flanders and the support they may have to move to Spain.
From the Chamber, we would like to thank the speakers for their interventions and all the attendees for their presence.
