Basque In The Sun

I recently spent a week in the Basque County with long time friend Doug McDonald who is originally from Fearn and now runs BasqueMTB. Doug knows us well and he had a tough week lined up for us.



Our week started damp but it soon picked up to reward us with warm temperatures and dry dusty trails. We cycled in the mountains...............





Along the coast on cliff hugging singletrack................



And finished on stunning golden beaches for end of ride swims in the surf.



San Sebastian.

The Basque Country is a beautiful place with stunning scenery as far as the eye can see, The trails are simply awesome, Ranging from rooty, rocky, techy, big climbs and even longer descents there is enough to keep everyone amused for more than a week.



We didn't manage to ride everything that the Basque country has to offer so that can only mean one thing! To be continued.............
