Finally the day arrived, with our minds already focused on getting to Compostela. Today you say goodbye, we don’t know if with joy or sadness, to the Primitive Way that you started a few days ago from Oviedo, to pedal along the French Way until you reach Arzúa, where the North Way also joins.
You should take special care with pilgrims on foot, especially in high season you will find numerous groups that occupy the entire trail.
Today the rural landscape will disappear, becoming much more urbanized as you get closer to the Galician capital. After riding around the vicinity of Santiago airport, the last climb of the route will be in San Marcos, the broadcasting centre of the Galician television. When you arrive at Monte do Gozo, we invite you to stop and contemplate the views, we assure you that you will understand the reason for the name of this place. Santiago is getting closer and closer!
You are in Santiago! Feel happy and proud to have completed your Camino Primitivo by bike. Now we just need to pick up the Compostela certificate and enjoy an incredible day getting to know the Galician capital.
