Regarding bikes on busses. I did not see anything regarding this on the alsa site. I know that in Galicia this is usually not a problem, but not sure how this is in Bilbao. You might want to try the other bike-resources that were posted in the message above to try and find you answer.BILBAO - IRUN , 25/08/2005 VIAJE DE IDA

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!!

You'll have to check with service providers to determine bike transport practices.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?
