Bike rental to do the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago has the power to unite people from all over the world to create a completely unique experience. It is a trip in which pilgrims come together to not only discover the wonders scattered along the way, but also share anecdotes and stories on their way to Santiago. However, there are those who decide to make the journey a little more comfortably and this is thanks to the use of the bicycle.

The so-called bicigrinos are those pilgrims who dare to make their way by bicycle. Of course, being aware that, if they want to achieve Compostelana, they need to meet some minimum requirements along the way. After all, the mileage traveled to the end cannot be less than 200 km. This is because, although the route by bicycle can be quite a challenge, the reality is that it is less complex than for those who do this route on foot.

However, when planning our trip, should we think directly about taking the bicycle with us from our home? This can be a bit burdensome, especially for those pilgrims who must travel from another country or even begin their journey from Almería. It can also be complex for those who do not have a bicycle ready or even lack a bicycle altogether.

Whatever your case, you should know that it is not mandatory to start the journey with a bicycle that we bring from our house. There are specialized companies that, today, work on the Jacobean Routes to, in this way, provide all pilgrims with the possibility of taking a bicycle with them for their chosen route.

What should you look at before renting a bicycle?

Not all bicycles are the same just as not all pilgrims need the same thing. Therefore, it is important that when renting your bicycle you take all the points into account, especially since this vehicle will be your companion along the route. And just as it is important to have good footwear to withstand the road, it is extremely important to have a good bicycle to help you complete the route.

  • First of all, check the condition of the bicycle - Remember that it will be your companion on this adventure, so it is extremely important that it is in good condition. Check that, once delivered, it has the appropriate tire pressure as well as a brake system in perfect condition.
  • Take a look at the contract, insurance and guarantee - Check each of the points that companies mark in their contract as well as in the insurance. Remember that, along the way, anything can happen.
  • Don't forget the accessories - Just as it is important to have our backpack with all the necessary equipment, we cannot overlook that we need all the accessories to be able to travel comfortably by bicycle.
