Thank you for posting this,Bilbao to St. Jean with BIKES
as promised, here's our Bilbao - St. Jean - report (following Sillydoll's advice):
6:30 AM Arrival at Bilbao airport (from Cologne with HLX).
The bikes should be left packed (e.g. cardboxes) for the bus-transport!
9:25 Airport shuttle bus to Bilbao Termibus - 1,15 EUR.
11:30-13:00 Alsa-Bus to Irun - 10,32 EUR (incl. 3,- EUR for the bike)
The bus should have started at 11:00, was late.
We did the 2km's Irun-Hendaye by bike, afterwards we found out, that the Alsa-bus' last stop is Hendaye.
So one should try to leave the bus not before Hendaye.
The bicycles should be unpacked for the small luggage compartments of the SNCF-trains. Their luggage compartments have hooks in the ceiling to hang the bikes up.
15:30-16:00 SNCF-train Hendaye -> Bayonne (departures 06:48/13:28/15:30/16:20/16:47/18:39).
17:30-18:30 SNCF-train Bayonne -> St.Jean Pied-de-Port.
The SNCF-railway timetable shows only two trains a day from Bayonne to St.Jean Pied-de-Port with bicycle-transport.
In fact ALL Bayonne-St.Jean (departures 08:55/15:04/17:30/19:58 ) trains take bikes!
I lost the prices for the trains (about 10 EUR).
And yes, the Saint Jean - Roncesvalles stage is for sure a wonderful stage!!

Thank you for posting this,
do you know if there has been other way of getting to Pamplona or SJPDP from Bilbao with a bike?
