Cycling the Ruta Via de la Plata

Cycling the Ruta Via de la Plata

This Cicerone guidebook to cycling the Ruta Via de la Plata through western Spain describes the 930km route from Seville to the coastal city of Gijon in around 2 weeks (14 stages).

A pilgrimage variant, the Camino Sanabros, to Santiago de Compostela is also described (16 stages in total).

Empty roads and gentle climbs make the route accessible to a wide range of bikes and cyclists. Both road and off-road versions are presented, and the guide shows how they can be combined to create a perfect touring, hybrid or gravel cycling trip.

The guide includes detailed route descriptions, 1:150,0000 colour mapping, elevation profiles and helpful ride planners to show where riders can swop from the off-road to the road route.

There is advice on equipment, travel and transporting your bike, alongside a list of accommodation contacts and a useful Spanish glossary.

The Ruta Via de la Plata is one of Spain’s most important pilgrim routes.

The 2-week journey takes in 7 UNESCO world heritage sites (Seville, Morida, Coceres, Salamanca, Leon, Zamora, and Oviedo) with the famous pilgrimage site of Santiago de Compostela if the Camino Sanabros is taken.

There is lots of good-value accommodation available, from hostels to palaces, and plenty of chances to sample Spanish gastronomy.
