Bilbao to San Sebastian

The Basque country is incredibly beautiful and a great place to do some bike touring.  My friend Bill emailed me about a month ago and asked if I would meet him in Bilbao for some riding around.  Of course I couldn’t pass up the oportunity so we planned a little ride from Bilbao to San Sebastian along the coast. Because we were intent on riding as much trail as possible and riding without a real plan we turned a 100 kilometer ride into a 260 plus kilometer ride.  We also were trying to do the trip on the cheap so we ended up spending most of our nights sleeping in fields on the side of the road, one of which was very popular with the local wild pigs.  The adventure went off without a hitch and only one flat tire.
