Description

A guidebook for anyone planning to cycle the Way of Saint James Pilgrim route from Le Puy in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. By using roads with a good surface for touring cyclists, this guide attempts to follow the original pilgrimage route as closely as possible and offers the opportunity to visit every major church and shrine along the way with a few detours to outlying monasteries for good measure. The average distance on most days is only 50km, easily within the compass of the moderately fit. The guide includes routes from Santiago to Finisterre and Padron for those cyclists who want that little 'extra', while several variants are mentioned to cater for the fit and not-so-fit pilgrim. There is a comprehensive kit list and an English-French-Spanish list of essential words for the journey, as well as details of accommodation in gites d'étape, chambres d'hôte, hotels, refugios and hostals.
