Bilbao to Barcelona

Bilbao to Barcelona

Zaragoza, Lleida and Montblanc

Having been off blogging for a few days, thought I’d share some of today’s ride. It’s been an odd couple of days, mostly enjoyable, slightly weird and very painful. Having hit Zaragoza from Villafranca, a long, flat(ish) and uneventful ride, just in time to check into a hotel, throw my bike into their luggage room […]

London to Bilbao to Guernica Slight change of plan for the start of this one. Having researched Bilbao prior to arrival and looked at the map for my potential route into San Sebastian on day one, I decided to modify things a little. There’s a village in Northern Spain which I really wanted to visit. […]
