Do I need a helmet for cycling the Camino?
Yes, helmets are needed if you are cycling the Camino de Santiago. CaminoWays supplies helmets but you can feel free to bring your own helmet with you if you like.
By law, bicycle drivers and passengers must use officially approved protective helmets when circulating within urban areas in Spain – except in long steep slopes, on the grounds of medical reasons or under extremely hot conditions (Spanish Law 43/1999: November 25th 1999). Failure to comply with this will result in a traffic fine.
