Re: Bike legalities

Hi, Difficult! I guess only people like the AA or RAC could give you legal advice about the legalities of taking vehicles abroad.

Re: From Bilbao - west or east?

ICC 'Comarca' series Nº 25, Pallars Jussá. I have all the trails in that area laid out as itineraries as .gpx files that will be available on-line, for a small fee, from sometime over the winter.
