Bilbao to Madrid | August 27 – September 6, 2020
Our focus will be on eating, drinking and riding, along with catching four stages of the race before breaking away from the race, and doing our own rides.
We’ll start with riding parts of two different stages, including the final 50k of a flat sprinters stage, before heading to Angliru to watch the pro’s tackle the steepest climb in Europe.
From Bilbao to Cantabria to Asturias, we’ll ride, eat and sleep in a wide variety of beautiful places, including two Michelin starred Restaurants (a one and a two star). Finishing with the grand finale in downtown Madrid.
You’ll love the northern coast of Spain and the Basque region, not to mention the seafood, wine, coffee, tapas, et al.
