Day 3 – Zarautz to Deba
5/13/17 – 32km/19.9mi from Zarautz to Deba, with at least 1900m/6234ft total ascent and descent.

Day 2 – San Sebastián to Zarautz

5/10/17 – Weeks of preparation and nearly 30 tiring hours of travel took us from Tampa/DC, USA to Newark, to London Heathrow, to London Stansted, to Biarritz, France, and finally, to Irún, Spain. Only 850km to go… wish us luck!
