CYCLE THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The variety of countryside along the route was wonderful. We cycled on every surface imaginable, from dirt tracks to tough mountain climbs, and from paths through vineyards to cobbled streets through beautiful villages. Each day was full of surprises and stunning views. Though no one in the group was doing the Camino for spiritual reasons, the fact that you meet so many people en route who are added a real sense of purpose to the trip and gave the feeling that we were working towards a goal of reaching Santiago.
What did you think of your group leader?
The leaders (Jose and Diana) made the difference between a good trip and a great trip. I could not praise them highly enough - both wonderful people, both with a great sense of humour and both went out of their way to ensure we had a great time, whilst also both immersing themselves in everything we did and being part of the group.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Panniers are provided so you don't need a daypack - it's much better to keep your bits and pieces in your pannier rather than on your back. The cycling is achievable by anyone with a reasonable level of fitness - you don't need to be an expert or even frequent cyclist.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This is a brilliant trip. Whilst it's physically tough at times, it's doable and the sense of camaraderie and team spirit will get you through the harder bits. It is super-relaxing - from the moment we arrived I left behind the stresses of work and felt totally immersed in the trip. Book it now!!
