In collaboration with IBAI FRADEJAS
Bilbao is a clear example of urban reconversion. A city that has been reborn from its ashes in all meanings: it has stopped being a black and white dedicated to the industry and it has become a cosmopolitan and designer city.
But at the end of the day it doesn’t stop being a big city, in constant movement and where the traffic predominates. Although cycling through its streets, and its emblematic locations is amazing. My thirst for adventure leads me to leave it, and enjoy its surroundings to be able to discover new places that, until now, I did not know.
Because as weird as it looks, the beauty of Bilbao, is that you can leave your house and in less than 5km you can find beautiful alternative roads or you can find a forest track in good shape and away from the main roads and all this while being close to the sea so we can be able to get the feeling of freedom.
Most of the times it’s said that we don’t appreciate what we have, our surroundings, and I totally agree, sometimes it’s not needed to travel far away to discover new landscapes or incredible views.
This is why, the fact that is possible to discover new places while being close to home, is something I never would’ve thought, this opens my mind and it makes me dream about exploring remote locations by bike…
