We arrived at Bilbao at 06:45hrs in damp conditions and approx 16degC temps. It was good to be riding on mainland Europe for the first time.
Before leaving Bilbao we made a flying visit to the Guggenheim Museum which is a very interesting building to say the least.
Todays ride was an easy one making our way along the N624 B Road to San Sebastián. The countryside was lush and heavily forested in placed with the mountains rising very sharply and disappearing into the low hanging clouds.
Unfortuntely Garmin GPS device failed to correctly load the Europe maps so we took a crash course in reading Spanish road signs which as it happened worked out ok.
We are finding European drivers very “bike friendly” which adds to the pleasure of riding.
We have stopped at San Sebastián for the night and about to hit the town to sample the local seafood and wine.
