Starting Camino Frances Late August (2016) from SJPDP
I am interested in biking from SdC to Finisterre after walking the Camino Frances.
Google maps says it's a 5 hr. 20 min ride.

Has anyone biked SdC to Finisterre before and, if so,
1. Can you rent bikes to go one-way to Finisterre (so that you could take the bus back)
2. What's a reputable place to rent bikes in SdC
3. Would you recommend mountain bikes (what is the terrain of the ride like), and how would you expect an able-bodied person who has never mountain-biked before to fare (if it is mountain bike-y)? Note, I ride a road bike often in MN.
4. Is the bike ride less scenic (or how does it differ) than the walking path to Finisterre?

Thank you!

Hi.
I cycled from Santiago to Finnistere then on to Muxia, it is a tough enough cycle out to finistre some big hills,
I used a hybrid bike no problems,
Try these guys http://www.elvelocipedo.com/Velocipedo/Ingles/indexI.html if they dont know they will help very friendly chaps.
I prefered Muxia to Finnistere but that is a personal choice, it was smaller and quieter stayed there for 4 days to relax.
To return from Muxia the local bus takes up to 2 bikes in the hold no problems, its best to ask the driver beforehand but it is not a problem. Pick up from bus stop in Muxia and drop of at main bus terminal Santiago. i believe it is the same from Finnistere.
I cycled the track to Finnistre and Muxia nice views stayed over in Olveiroa small village (Very small) the next section onto Finnistere is across mooreland it says in the book it is high and remote but that is subjective depending on your interpetation of remote. I come from Ireland and would not call it remote or high or even a bog. Nice cycle enjoy.

Lol, not so sure about that ;-) but it should prevent false alarms of doing some 'sleep typing' on the forum. Buen Camino, SY
