Is the Camino Ingles ok for riding bikes on?

This is to be our camino and we are wanting to use our mountain bikes to do it. Has anyone used bikes along this one before and what were your experiences?

Thanks

HI - I'm not aware of any other pilgrim cyclists, although there must be some. In saying that the times I have walked the route I have regularly met sports cyclists even on the most rugged stretches. I think you will be able to manage the vast majority of the route on mountain bikes. It would be really good if you could write down your experience of this route by bike for others.

Buen Camino

We will be doing a full blog on the website I am going to set up about doing it so I will happily share our experiences here!

This is to be our first camino with plans for more in the future hence the site set up for charity!

I will let you know the link once its done if thats ok with the mods. There will be no "forum" on it just an indepth description of why we are doing it, the blog and info on the charity we are helping out.

The average distance by cyclists on the Camino Frances is about 50km so you could do it two days on a bike.

Yes - I was thinking the same. I think it will be essential to get a sello in Ferrol and then try to get several more along the way when they stop for coffee etc if they want a Compostela.

Cyclists need to cycle 200km for a Compostela. They could ask for the 'other' certificate.
