A pleasant Sunday stroll....

.....along the Via Verde this morning, taking advantage of the cool temperatures we are having at the moment.
The bicycles at the rental kiosk getting a good clean before being available for hire. Rentals can be arranged here online or presumably by just turning up and taking your chance on availability.
If you so desire, you can warm up with a few turns on the free exercise machines. We didn't.
 The Via Verde is a 38 kilometre long disused railway track now converted into a leisure amenity for the enjoyment of walkers, horse riders, cyclists and nature lovers.

Lots of stunning vistas and varieties of plants and wild flowers along the way.

The buds of wild figs are starting to appear.

 Most of the tunnels are illuminated but sadly it appears the solar batteries used for the lighting are an easy target for thieves. 
 After a very pleasant 6 or 7 km walk we returned to the "Estación de Olvera" to see the cycle rental kiosk doing brisk business. 

 Looking up to Olvera from the Estación.
