We’ll meet in the heart of the city near the historic train station of La Concordia where I’ll set you up with your sweet new ride for the next 3 hours (your bicycle). The next step will be the old town where we’ll find some unique perspectives in this historic area. We’ll then pass by the classic Mercado de la Ribera, San Anton church and cross the bridge, leaving the tourist track and exploring an authentic neighborhood. As an optional side trip, we may cruise down the river, through the area of La Peña and do a loop - giving us a chance to fully absorb the surrounding area of Bilbao. The next stop is the vibrant immigrant and artist barrio of Bilbao La Vieja where we'll explore the best murals and street art. The bike journey will take us through the posh neighborhood of Indautxu, past the world-famous San Mames stadium and into the river path of Olabeaga where we’ll enjoy excellent views and maritime neighborhood vibes. An optional side trip based on interest and time will be Zorrozaurre, a man-made island that previously housed various factories and recently has enjoyed an artistic resurgence. The final portion will be cruising along the beautiful bike path alongside the river, where we’ll enjoy views of the Guggenheim and the iconic city hall. We'll end the adventure with local pinchos at an authentic neighborhood bar.
Originally from California, I made the leap to the Basque Country 3 years ago in search of adventure, the best hiking routes and life experiences. I’m also an avid cyclist who loves exploring my adopted city of Bilbao on 2 wheels. I’m naturally drawn to the least explored yet most authentic parts of any city. I’ve spent the first 2 years of my time here exploring every corner of this wonderful city and I’m excited to share my favorite spots with you!

The next portion of the adventure will take us to the west of the city, where we'll take in ocean breezes as we pass through the riverfront neighborhoods of Olabeaga and Zorrozaurre.
