Its green landscapes, lush forests, imposing cliffs on the bustling Cantabrian Sea to the north, its vineyards to the south or its mythical mountain passes are great incentives to ride a bicycle and discover every corner of Basque Country riding. But, if this were not enough, there are other ingredients that can make this tour one of the best cycling experiences:
Gastronomy: Basque Country is recognized throughout the world as one of the top places to live a world class culinary experience.
Culture: Land with a unique history and language, its traditions merge with modernism, with architectural wonders such as the Guggenheim Museum.
The best cycling: The great tours like Le Tour, La Vuelta or Euskal Herriko Itzulia have offered us great cycling evenings along these roads, with nervous routes and demanding mountain passes.
This trip will combine all kinds of terrains and landscapes in a 6 stage tour that will range between 80 and 130 kms per day. A route designed for cycling lovers, but without neglecting other aspects such as great eating and drinking or feeling the relaxation that supposes to stay in unique places.
