This week´s week we put on a week long mountain bike holiday for Rosie and her group of seven people. We were also joined part time by Steve and Nicola who are living in their campervan and touring Europe at the moment. We were affected by the bad weather that seems to be hitting much of Europe but we managed to find the best trails to ride and stay dry most, if not all, of the time!
The group had a great week, as did me and Antonio, and left us some fantastic feedback via our usual feedback forms and on some of the UK forums.
You can read the full thread here: BasqueMTB Mountain Bike Holiday Review.
It’s hard to put such high praise up here, I’m blushing even as I cut and paste, but I have to say that I am very proud about how much the guys enjoyed this week, especially given that they didn´t see the Basque Country in the best weather.
Sarah, another rider from the week also wrote us a review on BikeRadar saying:
You can read the whole review over on Bike Radar. Thanks a lot Miss Notax!
We also got a great review up on Trip Advisor from Rosie, the group organiser who said, among other things:
And again you can read the whole review, along with some others I hadn’t seen before, on Trip Advisor
So, my trumpet has been blown well and truly. Why don’t you have a look at the photos and see what we got up to, after the break. Read the post »
In the middle of May we had five guys out from the North of England for a mountain bike holiday in Spain with BasqueMTB. We had a week of mixed weather, a few days of perfect sunshine, some days which threatened rain but didn´t deliver and the last day was chucking it down. Still we managed to have a great week and rode loads of different trails, checking out some of our more technical rides.
This week I´m trying a different blog format, using a slideshow and captions. Please let me know what you think and what you´d prefer to see! Just click on the first image to start the show. Read the post »
Chris is a Canadian who visited us last year for a mountain bike holiday on the Basque Coast, Spain and we had a great week, with a group of other bikers. You can read about last year´s mountain bike holiday here. This year Chris booked again and this time took a couple of his friends from Canada, Kent and Jaycee. Kent and Jaycee have been on a lot of mountain bike holidays all around the world so it was a bit of pressure but great to get their opinion on our set-up. Read on to see how they got on… Read the post »
In April we showed IMBike Magazine aroud a mixture of our Basque Coast and Backcountry Pyrenees mountain bike holidays. You can read the article over on the IMBikeMag site but suffice to say that they liked it!
The journalist and photographer was Will Simmonns and when the magazine had taken the photos they wanted, Will was kind enough to share his photos with us and give us permission to use them on our website. All the photos in this blog, apart from a couple which I took of Will riding, are by Will. I would highly recommend Will to anyone looking for some mountain bike photography, he´s a great rider and works really quickly too which was important because it meant that we were able to do full routes. Read on for plenty of Will´s photos and a story of the holiday! Read the post »
