Begin your tour at a central location in San Sebastián. Pop on your helmet and mount your bicycle, before heading to the bustling Gros neighborhood via the Maria Cristina bridge. Cycle along the Urumea River through the city’s varied neighborhoods, pausing to hear the history and legends associated with landmarks, such as the Kursaal building.
