BiRick On Board Guide is the guide that we have created to enhance the experience on our tricycles
If we were wanted to describe Bilbao with single words, change would be ranked very high in the list. Bilbao was very industrial place but, today, we can’t see how it was. Practically since the beginning, we used to show pictures on our mobile devices to let passengers feel the weight of the industry. And, suddenly, one day we wondered: what about if we create an album with all the pictures we could find?
So, we started designing a beta of our idea and, over the season’s final stint, we were testing it: we were going in the tours explaining the history interleaved with the pictures we had in the guide. We had a positive feedback, so we decided to make the official one for the upcoming season. This official one includes: the pictures we had, some others we have found and some maps -made by BiRick- like the Old Town’s growth or the Bilbao area.
Ok, it's done
Our Photobook is a physical and fully customized souvenir of your experience in Bilbao
Today, everyone carries his/her own personal camera, and every single second thousands of photos are taken. There are so much pictures that very quickly they become old and are forgotten. But, we don’t want you to forget our beloved Bilbao and that’s the origin of our photobook.
There’re two parts: 1) an small collection with the featured images of Bilbao plus one quick guide of Bilbao’s musts; 2) The starred element will be the photo we are going to take you with a polaroid® which we’ll stick into your album. So, dress you up, because you won’t be able to photoshop that picture.
BiRick On The Road
Have you ever experience the silence of an electric car?Now, you’ll have the opportunity thanks to BiRick
No, it isn’t just enough for us to raise awareness in Bilbao, we want to go further more, carry the so called BiRick Spirit everywhere. That’s why we have contacted Gaursa to ask them for support to this project and they were charmed with the idea.
These are the destinations we have for this year:
Bakio & San Juan De Gaztelugatxe
Bakio is a coastal village in Bizkaia and one of the cradles of the Basque Surf. For many years was the summer place for Bilbao’s citizens which made it grow very quickly.
This journey will take us to discover the awarded local wine, the so called Txakoli, and one of the most amazing natural environments in the Basque Country: San Juan de Gatzelugatxe.
These are the places we are going to visit:
The Txakoli museum: here we can learn the history and the elaboration process of this local wine.
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe’s chapel: the images are just enough to want to go there, this is a must see in the Basque Country.
Activity lenght: ~4h.
Starting hour: flex depart between 9am and 11am.
Gernika & Urdaibai
Right at Urdaibai’s heart, Gernika is located, a beautiful village where you can fully immerse in the deepest basque culture (euskaldun). It was brutally blitzed during the civil war so was painted by Picasso in his famous picture: Guernica. In the village there are many interesting points, like the Peace Museum,La Casa de Juntas with its famous oak, the Jai Alai…summing it up, a complete cultural experience.
These are the places we are going to visit:
Peace museum: This interactive museum takes us back to april 26th 1937, the blitz day, where we can relive the tragedy.
Casa de Juntas: Here we’ll see one of the icons of the Basque People: Gernika’s Tree, the oak that appears in the Biscay shield.
Urdaibai: The go back will be along Urdaibai nature reserve heading to Bermeo and then, to Bilbao
