Frequently Asked Questions
Can someone else come by the Zubiarte Shopping Center to register me?
Yes, someone else can sign you up; You just have to show your Registration Number and if you are a member, bring at least one copy of your license. The ID is not necessary.
Where and when can I register exactly?
The final registration is in the central part of the “Puente floor” of the Zubiarte Shopping Center, Lehendakari Leizaola, nº 2. 48001 Bilbao.
You can pass during the following hours:

I am from abroad and I want to organize my trip; How can I be sure that I will have a bib number?
We do not have a registration quota, from experience we foresee enough bib numbers so no one has to be left without a bib number.
Can I register online?
You can only pre-register online (if you still do not have your Registration Number for having participated in any edition since 2013). Definitive registration and payment can only be made at the Zubiarte Shopping Center; Since we don’t have a registration quota, it shouldn’t be a problem.
I have paid for my license, but the card has not yet arrived.
In this case, you can request an official document signed and sealed from your federation confirming this situation. We accept this document as proof of being federated.
Are triathlon and mountain licenses valid...?
No, just the cycling licences.
Is it necessary to show my Registration Number on paper?
No, it can also be displayed on mobile.
How can I show that I am registered and that I am entitled to the refreshment and trophy?
You have to wear your number on the handlebars (if it is not technically possible, in a clearly visible place). People who do not carry the number with them do not have the right to refreshments or the trophy.
I have changed my email address
You can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will change it in our database.
Where can I park my caravan/van?
At https://bilbaohostel.net/area-autocaravanas-bilbao/ hey have postponements for caravans/vans.
Can I park my car already on Saturday at the Zubiarte Shopping Center and leave it there overnight until Sunday, the day of the march?
It’s not allowed. Cars cannot stay up all night in the parking lot of the Zubiarte Shopping Center. It is from 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 17, 2024, the day of the march, when cars can enter without having to take a ticket (free of charge until 5:00 p.m.!)
How do I enjoy the 50% discount on admission to the Guggenheim?
In the registration bag there is a paper envelope containing the number etc. The 50% discount voucher is printed on the paper bag itself, which must be shown at the entrance.
What happens if I am outside the hours indicated by the organization on the day of the march?
The director’s car leaves ahead of the first group at 8:00 a.m. and will take the Classic route at an average speed of 27.5 km/hour and will arrive at the finish line at 12:15 p.m. The broom car will leave behind the last group at 9:00 a.m. and will arrive at the finish line around 2:30 p.m. The participants have to be between these two vehicles, otherwise they will cease to be as indicated in our regulations. As a consequence, from that moment on they would not enjoy insurance (in the case of non-federated members) or medical assistance.
Is the tour closed to traffic? Can there be stops?
From the organization we try to do everything so that the participants do not suffer stoppages and that there is a situation as safe as possible. This does not mean that with thousands of cyclists and with a departure from and arrival in a city like Bilbao there may be some stoppage caused by the number of cyclists or by traffic devices.
Remember that the Occident Bilbao-Bilbao is a non-competitive cycling race without time registration.
