Sometimes, we enjoy moments of clarity. Ideas. Thoughts that enter your mind, empowering your imagination. It is 2014, on a road somewhere in the Basque Country. Riding his bike, feeling that unparalleled sense of freedom, the wind on his face, the pedals spinning, chef Iñigo Lavado was ticking off the kilometres with his friend, the veteran professional cyclist and Tour de France stage winner, Juanma Garate. Then it happened.
A journey. The long and winding road. The land of Euskadi cycling to be discovered, waiting for legs to drive the pedals. Eight friends, from across Europe – Dutch, English, Irish and Welsh – depart from Bilbao, ready to live an unforgettable experience. Because the Basque Country is cycling; the soul of Etxeondo.
