Cycling from Lisbon to UK using Pilgrims route via SDC


New Member
Intend to use a road touring cycle and either stay in refuges or camp. I have cycle camped before and happy at about 40 - 50 miles a day after a week of getting used to it again. I have a number of questions.
1. Are the pilgrim walking maps also ok for minor roads, which ones are best.
2. Doing the reverse route from SDC back to UK are the way marks in both directions.
3. Any other advice - grateful.

It's not as easy to follow the routes in reverse. Maybe the French Route is easier but I tried that on the VDLP. Hmmmm, not so much....Ha ha ha ha...
