To make the experience of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago enjoyable, you need to know basic bike maintenance and be adept at riding rugged terrains.

Most of the time your route will be the same route that pilgrims follow on foot and there is no specific cycle route. The route is a combination of rural paths (asphalt, cobblestones or dirt), forest trails (dirt or gravel, uneven and sometimes rocky), secondary roads and some main roads (both on asphalt).

Along the journey, you may sometimes encounter some steep climbs and descents, so good advance physical preparation is necessary in order to do this trip.

It is essential that you have experience with mountain bikes and basic bicycle repair knowledge, punctures may occur during the Camino.
