Running and bici

We believe in the importance of practising sports, and what better way to do it than while exploring Bilbao and getting to know its charms. We provide a series of routes with varying levels of difficulty for biking and running lovers, and we’ve uploaded them to the STRAVA app. This map app has a series of geolocated routes that show you the path to follow on your phone, even without an internet connection, so you don’t get lost.
