cycling-camino-santiago-bikes-caminowaysHelmets:

Helmet rental is also included as part of your package, but if you don’t need it and you rather bring your own, please let our team know. Bear in mind, by Spanish law, both cyclists must use officially approved protective helmets when riding outside urban areas (children under 16 should wear it at all times), except in long steep slopes, on the grounds of medical reasons or under extremely hot conditions. Failure to comply with this could result in a traffic fine.

If you would like to cycle the Camino with children, we also have various options, contact the CaminoWays.com team for more information.

*We recommend you cycle the Camino only if you have some experience as a cyclist and are familiar with essential bike maintenance (how to change a tyre for example and basic bike repairs such as tube changing and attaching pedals).

    Hi Maria, thank you for the response. What is the weight of the bike?

  5. By Maria

    Hi Lynette, the bikes are unisex and they are adapted to the cyclist’s height so it is possible to have smaller or bigger bikes. 27.5″ is the standard size. We hope this helps, let us know if you need anything else. Kindest regards.

    Hi, I am curious about the weight of the bikes. Also, do you have 29″ bikes vs the 27,5″. Are the bikes unisex?

    Hi Nicholas, here is an image of the panniers. There is plenty of room on each side but if you feel more comfortable having your own then please feel free to bring them along: http://caminoways.com/our-services#symple-tab-bike-rental Kindest regards, Lisa

    I am wondering what the small pannier looks like that is provided with the cycle. The reason is that I am wondering about whether I should take my own pannier for other gear.

    Hi Daniel, we can provide them for a minimum of 10 days rental and your journey must end in Santiago. There are not many of these bikes available so we would need to check availability for the dates that you need them. You can request more details from our travel team on info@caminoways.com Kindest regards, Lisa.
