THE SAINT JAMES WAY - Camino de Santiago de Compostela 2018 / By bicycle
From Le Puy en Velay to Santiago by bicycle
For hundreds of years, these tracks have been used by pilgrims and walkers. Following these footpaths which are steeped in history and visit so many different places, you will be captivated by both the variety and interest of the countryside you pass through. This long-distance walk may be the world's oldest, following as it does the Roman road known as the "Via Agrippa" which linked Lyon and Toulouse.
Using roads parallel to or close to the pilgrims' way, we offer you a nine-day cycling holiday, which includes opportunities to vary the distances travelled
