https://caminodesantiagobybike.co.uk/ is a brand new free to use guide for cyclists updated in July 2018 with all the info about the route, alternative routes and all albergues on the Way (with prices and directions). It contains maps and elevation charts for the crucial parts of the trail. The guide is richly illustrated with photos of the Camino. Although it is written with cyclists in mind also walkers may find it useful as it covers the history of the Camino, provides all important information for those preparing for the Way, guides to the churches, cathedrals, cities, towns, and villages on the Camino Frances. Never mind the individual guide to the city of Santiago de Compostela. All on your smartphone. Buen Camino!

By the way, the author first walked the Camino, missed the Way, so cycled it numerous times... Sounds familiar?

Great resource. I'm not a cyclist, but the history and general information would be applicable to any pilgrim.

Nice website. Just to get things started I dropped in a little opinion comment on your piece about bikes on the Camino

Thank you for this resource. I am enjoying reading it. I like your style, written and attitudinal! Cycling off into the middle distance till those looking incredulously can’t see you anymore, then falling off and walking again!

Thank you so much Bala! I believe that Internet is the best place to popularize the Camino, isn’t it?

Thank you for your comment – I read it avidly. It is always good to see things from the other person’s point of view.

Thank you, Kirkie so much. As I wrote in the introduction – there would be no glory stories about my lonely journey across Northern Spain…

If your niece's husband is a keen cyclist he will really enjoy doing the Camino Frances that for us cyclists mean cycling the Camino trail, empty former national roads, and cycle lanes. Amazing two weeks. Highly recommended.

Hola Mike
Thank you, so much! I launched the web two weeks ago so it will need some time to be listed by Google, Bing etc. Originally I wanted to publish it as a book and I’m so glad that I didn’t. Because on the Internet everybody can access it and use it. And then hopefully, pack the panniers and cycle to Compostela.

I have just added to the website PDF with simplified route description. Please use it while cycling the Camino. For everything else (albergues, bars, sights, alternative routes etc.) use the website.
