The train journey from Elgoibar to San Sébastien was smooth and easy. There were dedicated bike spaces on the train and it was only a couple of hours before we were checked into a hotel and ready to explore the food and drink for which San Sébastien is renowned. Pintxos – a Basque version of tapas – was the order of the day. We crawled several bars on a sunny but cold afternoon and took in the sights.
When we returned to our hotel we agreed to make a relatively early start the next day and try to achieve a decent mileage to make up for our idleness and burn off some calories!
