EuroVelo 1 in Spain follows the two ancient routes of the "Camino de Santiago" and the "Ruta Vía de la Plata". The Camino de Santiago or the ‘Way of Saint James’ is a network of trails traditionally followed by pilgrims on their way to the shrine of the apostle Saint James, in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, north western Spain. The Via de la Plata route dates back to the Roman era, during the reigns of the emperors Trajan and Hadrian, when a grand access route was created in the west of the peninsula,linking the Cantabrian coast with the lands of southern Hispania.

Events

Pirenaica

A bike trip through the Pyrenees from sea to sea, climbing mythical ports and discovering unique landscapes. There are no times, no ratings, no prizes. Going up each one carries his rhythm, but at the top the peloton regroups; we eat, talk, or go back down to go up with the most lagging. Maintaining this spirit of help and friendship is a priority for the organization. Pedal on the roads where the history of cycling has been written and see The Tour of those who will never go to the Tour.
