Etapa 10 btt | Ruta Vía de la Plata | La Ruta En Bici

Benavente - León

BTT · Stage 10 · 102 Kilometres See map


There are many signs indicating St James’ Way and the Via de la Plata Route, offering a wide variety of alternative routes, though there are not so many on the stretch between La Bañeza and Hospital de Órbigo. From La Bañeza, the signs indicate the Way of St James, which you should follow in the reverse direction. 

The stretch near Villabrázaro runs along paths and secondary roads, as the trail along the old railway line is not suitable for cyclists. As you come into La Virgen del Camino, you have to take the long way round due to the presence of the ring road. The stretches on paved road surfaces run along secondary roads with hardly any traffic.

The percentage of trails/paths is 50%, with the remaining 50% being paved roads.
