Andalusia with its culture, history and good weather during most of the year is an amazing option to explore by bike. We will have the chance to explore an incredible historic architecture, the cradle of flamenco and beautiful landscapes with fields, mountains and beaches.
We will ride out of the city by cycle lanes. Later we will reach Guadaría river, wich will lead us towards Carmona cycling through cereal and sunflower fields and small towns. Carmona is a town with an impressive historic architecture that has palaces, churches and walls. We stay at the Alcazar, a really historic construction now rebuilded as a Parador.
We approach the mountains of Grazalema and we will ride through small hills and a beautiful mediterranean ancient forest. Quiet roads and the Via Verde (an old train railway line restored for cycling) take us to Arcos de la Frontera. In the way we will stop for lunch in Puerto Serrano, a traditional andalusian town. Arcos de la Frontera is a historic town built on the top of impressive cliffs.
From Arcos we will follow a hilly road along the Guadalete river. The landscape is made of agricultural lands and mediterranean forests with some small towns where we can have a nice break. Jerez is considered as the cradle of flamenco. In Jerez we can enjoy one of the best known wines in Spain. You will be able to visit one of the many wineries and taste some sherry.
Today we will reach the sea at Puerto de Santa María where we can start enjoying the coastal gastronomy. Our ride finishes in Cádiz, the most ancient town in western Europe. The history, gastronomy and beaches make Cádiz a perfect destination.
