Description

The complete French Way, is the most demanded route of the Camino de Santiago, and also, it is the perfect option for those who love to travel by bicycle. This bicycle route takes half the time of the route on foot.
  • This option is becoming increasingly important. In fact, around 22,000 pilgrims obtained the Camino certificate by bike in 2017.
  • When traveling the Camino de Santiago by bicycle, you must bear in mind that, unlike the Camino on foot, which would be 100 km, you must cycle at least 200 km from any of the Jacobean routes. Some choose to start in Ponferrada and finish in Santiago, others opt for the complete French term, from Roncesvalles to Santiago de Compostela.
  • Our cycling itinerary begins in Roncesvalles because the stage that is usually done on the Camino on foot from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Roncesvalles is not possible by bicycle.
  • Another option of importance chosen by many pilgrims is to walk the stages between St-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Burgos, go by bicycle from Burgos to León (the plateau), and continue with the walk on foot from León to Santiago de Chile. Compostela.
  • All our bike tours have included hull rental, saddlebags and of course bicycle. In case you want your own bike, there is no problem at all.
  • This tour is recommended for pilgrims who have previous experience with bicycles.
  • In addition, a minimum level of bicycle maintenance knowledge will be required, in case there is any problem or eventuality in the Camino.
