Arrived in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria 8am to perfect weather. The sky had a hint of rose in the clouds and there was little breeze. After breakfast we walked to see if we could hire some bikes for the day but when we arrived the shop was not open until 11am so we crossed the few city streets of the narrow isthmus of Las Palmas to the beach on the northern side for a walk. The sea looked very inviting for a swim but we had not brought our costumes but the stroll along the beach was very pleasant. Back At the shop at 11am we managed to hire 2 good cycles and set off the 7 mile or so along the cycleway by the promenade and road. Las Palmas is a very sprawling not very pretty city but we enjoyed the cycle, visited the old part of the city and cathedral about 5mile along the prom and also some nice gardens where we climbed up many steps for a good view over the docks and city back to our cruise ship.

It was another tiring day but very successful. The temperature had been 23C which was perfect and my knee just about survived the cycle after a lot of TLC with ice pack,swim and jaccuzzi afterwards!
