The route more than 500 miles

600 miles in 20 days (including a couple of rest days and continuing to Finisterre) cycling the Cantabric coast of Spain (averaging 50 miles a day). From Irun to Santiago de Compostela on road bikes, at an average speed of 11miles an hour...should give us some time to enjoy landscape, fantastic food, drawing and collect great recipes for our recipe collection.

Getting the perfect bike

It is such a difficult decision to get a new bike,  there are so many in the market and so good for so many reasons. When you ask an expert cyclist they all recommend to try and see how you feel.
Feeling a bike is not easy, specially if you are a "commuter"; commuting or city bikes, are such as different ride.
Bike shops geeks tend to recommend what they would buy for themselves, very expensive and sophisticated and with lost pieces with interesting names.

After trying a few, touring and road, I ended up getting the Specialized Dolche.

Some of the candidates were:
The beautiful touring Voyager Ridgeback very sturdy and reliable.
