Equipment list Camino de Santiago by bicycle
How to understand this list
Do not take the equipment list literally. All the items below are listed here only with the intention to help those planning the Camino de Santiago and that are deciding what to carry. Evidently it is not a shopping list and you do not have to carry everything. For that reason I have breaked it into OBLIGATORY // NECESSARY // RECOMMENDED . The purpose of this list is that each person can know what is needed and what is not, what you may need eventually, what can be useful, and of course what is essential. The equipment required can vary greatly depending if you are doing the Camino in winter or in summer and if you travel alone or in group for example. All that can influence the list of things needed and so it is very difficult to find a single list that suits everyone and all circumstances.
Have in mind that traveling through Camino de Santiago is not like going into the desert and that anything you can buy in a store is not worth hauling for hundreds of miles “just in case”. If you have a headache it is as easy as stopping at a pharmacy to buy an aspirin and if you run out of batteries for the GPS device, you can buy them in the next town (on the French Way there are towns practically every ten kilometers).
Therefore, this is a list to consider everything, to refresh your memory, to give ideas but in no case to carry everything.
