      I had the same experience with an older man near that same place back in October 2022 at end of the water and stone route. Nothing about a museum, but just very interested in me. I shook him off, and then he had driven up farther along the route...

      I've had a collision with a bike on the Camino. I was lucky that it was a young, fit cyclist on a lightweight mountain bike, who chose to half crash into a fence instead of completely running over me. Result was a few scratches for the cyclist...

      Ivan_Prada reacted to fkmueller's post in the thread Compostela: Electric Bikes Excluded? with Buen Camino! Buen Camino!.
      My introductory posting. I rode the Portugese Central Route from Porto to Santiago in September 2022. My wife and daughter walked it. When they told me they wanted to walk the Camino for vacation I was a little dismayed—because I thought they...

      @davebugg, of course your contributions were clear and helpful :) but that cannot be said of all the contributions where it is sometimes not clear whether a fact is stated or wishful thinking or something that is plain wrong. Or even a joke in...

      In Spain, this is neither a bike nor an e-bike according to the Spanish road traffic regulations. I recommend looking for definition and traffic rules for bicicleta electrica in the Reglamento General de Vehículos y el Reglamento General de...

      That may be, but what makes sense is not what counts. What does count is what is allowed or permitted for Ebikes or Gbikes using trails and paths that only make sense for pedestrians and horses/burros/donkeys/mules.

      Modern technology for transport can either be discarded and traditions maintained as it pertains to the Caminos de Santiago. Or we must be mindful that if one exception to technology is made in the modern era it almost requires that continued...
