Hey, thanks a lot Onzadog! I’m looking forward to seeing you guys again and I have some new, sunny rides planned.
Btw, nothing is any trouble, your wife is great to deal with… I will get my wife to send you some emails and you will know all about trouble 🙂Posted 5 years ago
What sort of riding do you want? We loved the fact that it was natural stuff and no lifts. The advantage of no lifts is no power rangers! Doug did partial uplift for us which was great.
Local airport was bilbao, easyjet fly there from Manchester and stanstead. After Doug’s efforts with Easyjet, you can still take your bikes.
Have a look at his website and drop him a line, you’ll not regret it.Posted 5 years ago
Doug’s enthusiasm for the trails + a million!!
Reason i’ll be going back for a while, just need to sort my life out and get the ‘puffer out of the way!
Usually i get ‘our trails are the best, there’s nothing better in universe!’ whereas Doug always seemed to be on the search for more..
Hopefully, i’ll be over around sept/oct.Posted 5 years agospacehopperSubscriber

I thought this thread was going to be about something like this :
oh god, no, much much better than a poshundied pendletears!
We went in May last year when the weather was a bit hit and miss to say the least, but it says a lot about the quality of riding and overall holiday that Doug offers, that it was still our best ever holiday, bar none. Gave us memories that will stay with us for many years to come I think 🙂

Well, I have read this thread several times and I´m genuinely touched. I´ve been struggling to reply to be honest, it´s not often I´m lost for words. Thanks to everyone, both for posting here and also for coming and giving me some great weeks riding bikes and pretending to work.
“Banks”, how much did you hate that dog?! It disappeared when we did our autumn trips, it´s probably swimming the Channel to your house 🙂
Tim, Gav, Onza and Mrs Onza, spacehopper and banks, thanks! Hindlepie, I´ve not worked out who you are yet, it´s always fun working out who posts as what.
Don´t be disspointed Turner guy, when you book just use the codeword “hirstute” and I will make sure I dress up real nice for you.Posted 5 years agoEd-OMember
He’s got so much enthusiasm for riding and for the fantastic place he lives in. Every time I go back he’s found new trails and he goes out clearing and building new sections on a regular basis, adding to the already rich network. If you like riding fantastic natural singletrack in beautiful quiet landscapes with some of the best food in the world always near by, then you’ll love the Basque MTB experience. Doug is a great guy and he even has a trustworthy beard.Posted 5 years agobluerobSubscriber
I’m going back in April and it just can’t happen soon enough! Doug, Ed and the local guides, Antonio and Borja kept us laughing, smiling and riding the entire week. It was a joy to share their stunning trails and soak up first class food, booze and scenery with a really friendly group of riders.
I keep thinking back to riding through mountain passes, endless descents, heart stopping switchbacks, gaze-stealing fall-lines and heart-pounding climbs – and that was just the first day 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Thanks for the new comments guys! Redwoods, the beard sort of went and then came and went a bit and then when the baby arrived it came back with vengeance. I´ve been told if we are having another baby it will either be without my beard or the immaculate conception.Posted 5 years ago
