Biking Through Spain is a company specialized in cycle touring and Mountain Bike tours. Our routes are designed to profoundly enjoy the most spectacular and natural surroundings of our geography. Our activities are not only for more experienced cyclists but also those who want to begin cycle-tourism as a means of travel.
For several years we have enjoyed traveling by bike. We love seeing the paths, streets and routes every time more frequented by this small, ancient and lovely vehicle which generates healthy ecologic circulation and lends itself to positive attitude.
For quite some time we have traveled on bikes through several countries and we know the necessities of this kind of active tourism: transporting of bikes, maintenance, assistance, searching for the most peaceful routes etc.
We get pleasure going through the most beautiful landscapes of the regions and love learning about them through travel. Experiencing the regions, their cultures, art, gastronomy and people.
We mainly search for sustainable lodging with ecological local products, bike friendly and people deeply rooted in the regions.
We want to completely immerse ourselves in nature and for this provide knowledge of the areas, design and optimal planning of routes and skill levels
Our country has a richness of natural resources, landscapes and cultures of great diversity.
For all these reasons and for you we created Biking Through Spain.
ISMAEL. Founder of Biking Through Spain. He has enjoyed climbing the Pyrenees since childhood. Measuring himself against the most beautiful mountains of the Alps as a youth and crossing the Karakorum as an adult to feel Stendhal’s syndrome when faced with the most savage aspects of nature.
He has jogged through forests and trails in addition to running several marathons. Since the 90’s he has continually traveled by bike, trips which have taken him across the Pyrenees from sea to sea, through French Brittany by its varied routes, going down from the Alps to Rome by old pilgrimage routes and the diverse paths of “The Santiago Way”.
XABIER. Restless spirit, graduated in Physical Education, Mountain and Ski Guide besides being a Guide Trainer with ample experience in his background. He has worked in Catalonia and Basque Country and has gone through five continents biking, walking and skiing. As a guide he has worked in the Pyrenees, Alps and of course in his native region, Basque Country, which he knows like the back of his hand.
JOSU. Young Basque athlete who since childhood has ridden a bike. His main sports are swimming and water polo in which he has reached top levels in addition to participating in several open sea crossings.
On bikes he prefers long distance and downhill, the latter is a trend which in recent years has been gathering popularity. Josu is a member of the BetiBehera Downhill Team which has done various races such as Sant Andreu de la Barca, Morata de Tajuña and last but certainly not least the Bilbao City World Tour in competition with top professional riders.

JOSE. He began his mountaineering experience in Basque Country. Nature and everything around it has opened a world of sensations that he never tires of exploring. He has done trekking and climbing in North and South America, North Africa, the Himalayas and all of Europe. He also does mountain and alpine skiing. He knows the Bizkaia region and other important geographical routes well by MTB. His main passion is doing routes, even though from time to time he gets the urge for competition and participates in some alpine XC and Duathlons. He has professional training as a Mountain and Mountain Bike Guide. If you want to enjoy a memorable experience Jose will help you achieve it.
* All of our Guides have official degrees as Bicycle Guides (AFDA0109). Itineraries in Bike Guides. (RD 1209/2009 17th of July, modified by the RD 711/2011, 20th of May).
We collaborate with Bicycles without borders because we feel committed to and motivated by their project. The fact that a bicycle is a basic tool to gain access to knowledge creates ties between our projects.
BWB, in its current work, is making it possible for 800 Senegalese boys and girls to avoid daily walking on a dusty path in 104 degree heat to arrive to school. Having a bike means using 5 times less energy than walking and in many cases this is the difference between getting and education or not.
We dedicate a part of our earnings to promote BWB’s programs and through our site we’ll be doing specific actions in which everyone can collaborate.
“In May of 2015 Ismael guided us on a 2 day bike trip through Empordà from Roses to Llança. Our trip took us on little roads, but above all on trails, through Cadaqués, Port Lligat and Port de la Selva. Ismael chose a route with beautiful views, nice trails with few people and with stops to enjoy the surroundings. Besides this, Ismael quickly and efficiently solved the repair of my tire. He provided us a comfortable lodging during our night in Cadaqués as well as an excellent restaurant for dinner.
I hope to have the opportunity for Ismael to guide us on our next trip!”

“I’ve done many trips organized by Ismael. For some time he has prepared bike trips for us in natural surroundings where we have enjoyed cycle tourism with the tranquility of different factors:
Well planned and adapted itineraries according to our profile and level of difficulty
Teaching of basic riding principles
Basic maintenance of the bikes
Search for natural itineraries of great beauty”
Dolors Heras Hospital Administrator
“I’ve enjoyed diverse routes organized by Ismael. He’s meticulous with the planning of bike trips taking into account the level of difficulty and the desire to enjoy sport activities in natural surroundings. Most notable is his capacity for orientation in difficult areas. In addition to this, he has optimal control of the maintenance and repair of the bikes.”
Hector del Campo Insurance Broker
“The route proposals that Ismael organizes present the attractiveness of some infrequently traveled natural spaces where cycling is done enjoying some unique landscapes. Although I’m a frequent cyclist in different disciplines, Ismael’s trips are especially well planned and organized. He finds itineraries apt for the level of the participant, looking for a balance in which all participants can enjoy equally. He also offers useful recommendations for safe cycling.”
