In the first week of June 2002, I cycled with my brother on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. He started from Le Puy, France, and after he’d been on the road for 750 miles, and two weeks, I met him at Sahagun, near Leon, Spain, to cycle the remaining 250 miles to Santiago. This is an account of my journey, and the preparations for it. I have gone into detail about some aspects, which may help anyone else travelling the route.
