palms & pikalas
Today on the program; a green bicycle tour!
A mighty fine bicycle tour to discover the beauty of the surroundings of Marrakech in the most green way!
Together with our twelve orange Pikala bikes, we visited Jardin Majorelle (with a short herbarium tea break in Cafe Majorelle) and afterwards the new Yves Saint Laurent Museum around the corner.
All bikes are parked in a row in front of Jardin Majorelle, from there we continued our ride to explore the palm grove, beyond the busy districts outside of Marrakech and to traverse the palm jungle.
After a beautiful bike ride, we arrived at the pergola terrace at Les Deux Tours for a lunch. In a setting of palm trees looking towards the Atlas Mountains, this is the perfect spot for relaxation and we had all afternoon to swim, to have nap on the lawn and a to walk through the gardens.
And obviously around sunset is the best time to enjoy the beautiful skies and views, to cycle back to Marrakech.
Which automatically means that we end up in the evening rush hour in the medina, another adventurous experience at the end of this wonderful day.
