Expo Bike and Bicigrino arrived in Santiago de Compostela, April 15, 2014, and were all smiles from their successful completion of their Camino journey. A special time shared among pilgrim friends Jose Luis Penedo Del Rio (Cologne, Germany), Helmut Weingarten (Cologne, Germany), Julio Castro Marcote (Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and Cándido Pazos López (Santiago de Compostela, Spain) along with their Bicigrino team mate and camino companion Tomas Sanchez.

In celebration of their arrival a press conference was held at the Parador Hostal Dos Reis Católicos to provide an overview of their camino experience and to share the 2015 Expo Bike & Bicigrino Camino Project Plans in which a special group from Expo Bike Germany will venture to Spain for another special experience along the way and more fantastic camino memories. Bo Camiño!

What better way than to start the Easter Holiday Spring Break week than being in the camino seeing pilgrim friends, as well as, making new ones. A very special thank you to Julio Castro Marcote, Director of the Parador Hostal Dos Reis Católicos, for introducing us to your friends Helmut Weingarten (Cologne, Germany), Jose Luis Penedo Del Rio (Cologne, Germany), and Cándido Pazos López (Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and for participating in Rexistro 108 Vilei.

A wonderful collaborative CAMINO project in the works for 2015 with German Expo Bike Group and sponsors such as Bicigrino.com.

Rexistro 108 Vilei is a creative photography project started by German Limeres in August 2011 where he captures the faces of the pilgrims as they pass his families country house along the French Route of the camino in Vilei. Just 3km outside of Sarria through the magical forest before entering Barbadelo/Vilei. In September 2011 I joined German in capturing the video testimonials of the pilgrims as they share their personal camino reflections on the “What” and “Why” of their pilgrimage journey. Rexistro 108 Vilei is the first visual register of the global pilgrims in the world as they make their Camino adventure.
