A couple of friends and myself have been considering cycling the camino de Santiago here in Spain. The route we are hoping to cycle is 630Km in total. We are hoping to complete this journey in 8 days and I wanted to get some advice as to completing this type of journey.
None of us have any extensive experience doing anything like this! We are hoping to do the cycle at the end of June. As such we are beginning to prepare for the trip and this is where I am looking for some advice from experienced cyclists.
What type of bike would you recommend? The journey is going to be all on well surfaced roads and will include hills of varying degrees.
Any opinions, advice or experience would be greatly appreciated.
