Training. For an adventure this demanding you need to be in good shape, so train in advance and remember you’ll be carrying more baggage than usual. Luggage. You should bring a helmet, cycling clothes, a water bottle, a rain cape, and suitable shoes. And don’t forget the tools you’ll need if you have to repair your bicycle.Food. A good breakfast is always ideal. If possible, include something sweet and some nuts, to start the day with energy. Hydration is also vital, so always keep your water bottle full, because there are stretches where it can be difficult to find water.Accommodation. If you’re going to stay in public shelters, remember that most of them close their doors at 22:00. If you prefer to enjoy the evening, it’s better to opt for private shelters or hostels.Time of year. Although you can go at any time of year, spring is the best season for cycling this route. You’ll avoid the extreme heat of summer, especially in the south, and you can enjoy greener scenery and spring flowers.
