AMBE, Spain’s national cycling production association, reported that 1,088,548 bicycles were sold in 2014, up 5.2% from the previous year.

And the association expects that figure to boom later this month as the Vuelta a Espana gets underway.

More than 2,000 new jobs were created in the cycling industry last year, more than any other sporting industry in Spain.

Sales of cycling accessories also rocketed 6.6%.
