At the Hotel Gran Bilbao we have a BikeSpace where, after your bike route, you can clean, tune up and park your bike, ready to be enjoyed again the next day.

You are a cyclist. You love to travel with your bike, either following routes, crossing mountains or cycling around the city, right? The Hotel Gran Bilbao is a Bike-friendly hotel. We also like to travel the world pedaling. For this reason, we know exactly what your needs are, and we have adapted the hotel to meet them. Pay attention because we are going to tell you why the Hotel Gran Bilbao is ideal for cyclists.

Traveling with your bike is a real pleasure, isn’t it? You can go wherever you want, live a thousand adventures along natural routes, tour the city visiting the most hidden places, reach areas that only locals are familiar with. What’s more, it also allows you to enjoy your favorite sport while on vacation.

But it’s not always that easy. If you go to a hotel, where do you keep your bike? What if you have a punctured tire, or you have to make a small repair? Or if it arrives covered in mud and you need to clean it? What if it’s electric, and you have to charge it to keep going? That’s when the problems start. You need to find a reliable workshop where you can get it ready for the next day, a place to clean it, a place to charge it and most importantly, a place where you can store it safely without having to take it up to your room.

At the Hotel Gran Bilbao we will solve all these problems. We are the ideal hotel for cyclists, since, in addition to other services that you will soon discover, we have a BikeSpace where you can:

Fix your bike and leave it ready for the next day.
Clean it with a hose without having to waste time looking for a place to do this.
Store it safely.

In addition, we have lots of routes prepared for you. Do you want to know more? We can tell you everything.

Bikespace: A private space for repairing, hosing down and storing your bike
