Cómo adaptar tu bici a tus necesidades

First: the cover

For choosing a cover there is only one rule, what worked to others not always will work for you. Variable such as the field, the weather, and weight are very important at the time you have to choose one.

If most of the route is on pavement, I recommend you to use road wheels rather than narrow, and if the opposite, most of the route is by field, mud, grass the best you can use is a wider wheel .

During your travel you will find different types of routes, and most of us we are not expert pilgrims or atlethes, thats why I will recommend you to find a intermediate cover with a width of 1.90 to 2.1

The hand bag

Is very important have near the things that you need in your bike. I told you in other post that is a great idea use a hand bag to keep the sun glasses, the sunscreem, a cup, the phone, your purse and other things. It’s a practical choice because you can take what you want while you’re riding a bike.

Also, these bags can you put the GPS, perfect to people that choose alternative roads and for the people that visit the villages near to Camino. And it’s easy to put on and put off.

These bags are in specialized store and Internet, the prices are different depending the quality and size. You can find them between 10 and 100 euros.

The pilgrims also use to choose the saddlebags but remember well placed baggage.

I have many baggage: the trailer

There is an practical and simple option to transport a lot of baggage his name is trailer.

You can find different kind of tráiler so you don’t have a problem to choose yours.

Remember watching the weather it will do and the type of terrain that you are going to move:

  • To choose between a sport or road versión.

  • Because there are a covered trailers to protect yours belongings and only structure.

  • To choose different anchorages.

The Price may change from 70 euros.

Extra baggage: Children and pets

If you travel with your children you need to install a chair, tráiler ora n other adapted transport system to bikes. All of them are easy to place, but don’t worry about that children and dogs will talk later.
