Bicycle Rental for Pilgrims
Due to the high demand and high quantity of people requesting this type of rental during previous years, we have worked hard to prepare and coordinate this service through the leading website on CAMINO DE SANTIAGO cycle touring. Our rental bicycles are now prepared and set up specially to serve pilgrims pilgrims who, travelling on foot, want to go through the hard and monotonous stages on the plain and wasteland quickly.
In normal circumstances this stretch can be made in about 3 or 4 days of pedalling.
