    Biking from Sahagun to Leon

    What's a good option for a bike rental for this stretch? The places I've found online so far have required a 7 day rental, something I'm not willing to put out for.

    Cycling & Walking the Camino de Santiago 2017-02-20

    In early 2014 we visited our friends Jessica and Nigel, and the Camino de Santiago came up in conversation. They had just completed it but we had no idea that it even existed until they told us about it. We learnt that it was a famous walk that started in St Jean Pied-de-Port and finished at...

    Biking the English Route

    I'm considering biking the camino; but am interested in both the Northern and English routes. I know cyclists have to bike the last 200 km which eliminates the English route since it isn't that long. If a person were to cycle 100 km or more of the Northern route, and then transfer to the English...

    I wanted to bike the camino but bringing my bike from the US was just not possible due to complex logistics & $400 in cost, notwithstanding any damage to my bike. So I've decided to head to the decathlon in Pamplon and buy a bike instead for 200 euro. I looked on the ALSA site and they say they...
