Hi I walked the Camino Frances back in December1992/January1993.
Don't have the feet anymore to do seriously long wallks. So this time I will be using a bicycle, and have from 8April untill 12 May to get to Santiago. Hoping to get a cheap bicycle in Seville, so if
anybody has any recommendation for secondhand bike shopping in Seville I would be happy to get some info.

Alternatively if anybody has rented a decent bike in Seville, I might be able to contact that place
and see if they were selling off older ones.

Was recently in Spain and met people who bought "NEW" mountain bikes for €120, so that may be the way I have to go. Nice to start of with new tires, chains etc. Will be carrying minimal gear.I hope, so apart from rear carrier I hope not to add anything else to bike..
Thanks in advance
martin

Not sure if this helps, but I think Decathlon, the large sports store have a branch in Camas, nr Seville on the vdlp and also another one in Santiago. It's just an idea but another option.

Interesting. There has been an invasion of bicycles in Sevilla as the Ayuntamiento are promoting alternative modes of transport. There are locations all around the city where bikes can be rented simply by putting a card in a machine - you cycle to the nearest bike park to your destination and park the bike - you are only charged for the time you use. I'm sure there will be opportunities for buying second hand bikes or renting. Have a look at:

There are also websites like Craiglist which cover Sevilla and there is a great local newspaper with loads of classified ads:

Good luck
