Cadiz
A special three kings ride to Cadiz. Starting from Casa Blas as usual and through town to pick up the cycle track to San Fernando at the Aldi roundabout, continuing round San Fenrandoi to Bahis Sur shopping centre to pick up other riders. The track starts directly from the car park and all along the side of the railway track right into Cadiz centre. We stopped for coffee along the promenade near the new suspension bridge and by that time it had warmed up after a chilly start. Suitably refreshed we threaded our way through round the city and all round the penisular and along the sea front to the lovely Nahubeach Restaurant for drinhs before heading back to Chiclana and home.
