BILBAO & BEYOND

Ready to move to the next level? Then, our seaside bike tours are your best bet in Bilbao. With them you will have the most complete vision not only of the city but of the entire area all the way down to the sea!

TOURNE GOLD COAST

19km and 5h of entertainment separate us from Getxo, the town where the wealthy large families built their ostentatious palaces by the sea. On the first of our seaside bike tours we will delve into the industrial past of Bilbao and see its effect on the prosperity of the area.

TOURNE ALL IRON

100% industrial is what defines our Tourné All Iron. A journey that will take you deep into the mining heart. A route a little more physically demanding than that of Getxo reserved for the most daring.

DESCRIPTION

Alirón or “All Iron” was the expression that the British miners shouted in the iron farms in the town of Muskiz and surroundings back in the late 19th century when the iron they extracted was of great purity, since that meant double pay.

Iron and its extraction have had an essential meaning in the demographic and structural evolution of Bilbao and its surroundings, as well as in the evolution of the entire province of Bizkaia. On this seaside bike tour of approximately 25 km we will cover the entire left bank of the estuary from Bilbao to Muskiz, visiting much of the mining area and remembering stories from the past, passed down from father to son, as well as the struggles between the poor and the wealthy and the differences that persist, even today, between the inhabitants of the right bank and the left bank.

Once in the town of Muskiz, we will have the possibility both to immerse ourselves further in that mining past through a visit to the El Pobal Ironworks and to relax looking at the sea from the Playa de La Arena or in the nearby municipality of Pobeña.

DESCRIPTION

Welcome to the DIY version of our seaside bike tours in Bilbao. In them you will find step-by-step instructions to successfully complete each of the routes that we propose, that is, Tourne-Muskiz (Tour all Iron) and Tourne-Portu Zaharra (Tourne Gold Coast). There are several different formats:

  • A downloadable guide
  • A physical guide that you can ask us at the store when you rent your bike *
  • The GPS tracks for the most techies

Remember that although they are relatively long routes, they run near alternative means of transport, such as the subway or the train, where you can enter with the bike and return to Tourné easily.

Using GPS tracks

To have a fantastic experience we recommend using the GPS tracks together with the guide (or even in the absence of it). If you have never used a track of these it is really easy: you just have to go to the app store of your phone and download an application that reads gpx format (put gpx in the search engine) and open the file with the app. The design varies from app to app, but surely you will get a map with the marked route and your position on it. From there, it should be quite intuitive to follow to complete the journey.

If you have any questions, when you come to rent your bike ask us, we will be happy to explain.

*The physical guide implies a deposit of € 5 that we will refund upon your return.
