    The Camino Ingles is not 100 km. Does anybody have a way to get it to 100 km so that one can obtain the Compostela in Santiago? Larry

    Coastal route vs inland

    Which is easier for an old road biker, from Porto, the coastal route or inland? Which has less hills? It looks like the distance are about the same. Thanks Larry

    For my 10th and final Camino en bici, I would like to make it easy. The question is, does anybody believe that a documented beginning in A Coruna. direct to Finisterre, and terminating in Santiago would get me a Compostela? I calculate that it would be about 210 Km. Is there any way that...

    Cycle Porto to Santiago-

    Sukim, I have biked from Porto to SDC twice. I loved it. I am fat, old, and slow so it took me 6 days. I have rented from Bikeiberia several times. They are flawless. Located in Lisbon, but they send the bike anywhere you desire.

    Is it possible to have the rented bike delivered to the Pilgrim office or at the refuge municipal?

    Bikeiberia is wonderful. Tania will be glad to call the Pilgrims Office and make the arrangement. Tell her Larry suggested it. I have rented from them 8 times without flaws.

    Cycling thie Camino Ingles

    Hi Randy, I would like to bike the Ingles, but it is only about 120km. In order to get the Compostela at the end, you must bike 200 km. So, I am thinking about going from La Coruna airport to Finisterre and then to SDC. That should be 200 km. Any suggestions are welcome. Larry

    Biking Camino del Norte/Primitivo questions

    I have used Bikeiberia several times, and highly recommend them. Rent the pannieres from them. They will deliver and pick up anywhere.

    Did you frame your Compostela?

    Absolutely frame it. I framed mine along with the Credencial and 4 photos, and hung my shell on the outside. I did this 7 times.

    Hi John, I guess I am just ignorant. I went to the website, but I could not find a map. Could you walk me through it to the map. Thanks
