Looking to buy a mountain bike

I'm flying into Biarritz this Wednesday (17 Oct) and am looking to pick up a mountain bike somewhere between SJPdP and Pamplona (spinal injury contraindicates backpack, and sending bags ahead feels wrong for me). I know there's a big Decathlon there, but would rather buy one second-hand if possible.

If anyone has one to offload, or knows of a good place to pick one up, please let me know. I'm already checking milanuncios.com pretty religiously...

Hi, welcome to the Forum, and buen camino. In
Pamplona there is an organisation called Emaus, and they have a huge recycling business (excuse the pun!). I don’t know what to google to find them, but I could ask someone who knows them, if you can’t find them. It would be pot luck, but I understand they have everything under the sun, including bikes. My friend got hers there.
