Throughout the Basque Country, the Ignatian Way is signposted as the GR 120 long distance path with the approved red and white markers for those following it on foot. This guide suggests several options to avoid those stretches which can be more complicated for a mountain bike with saddle bags. Consider your physical fi tness when deciding which route you’re going to take. The Ignatian Way for bikes is not marked as such. Get yourself a GPS or app on your smartphone with the route to follow. Do not forget to use a helmet, reflective clothing, a good padlock, sunglasses, sunscreen and the necessary material to carry out basic repairs. Be extremely careful on stretches of road. As you get closer to pilgrims on foot, reduce your speed when passing them by.
