The Levante Way is a Jacobean route that crosses the Iberian Peninsula from east to west, starting from the Mediterranean coast, in the city of Valencia and concluding in Zamora, where it joins with the Via de la Plata, which comes from Andalusia.

- Bicycle: no special bike requirements as the route is mostly flat. I would not recommend small-wheel fold-up city bikes without compensation for the small wheel circumference, just because it will be more difficult to hang with the big wheeled people but this is up to you! :)
- Bike helmet.
- Comfortable sport clothes for cycling.
- 2 litres of water + some snacks.
- Some money to buy the lunch and train ticket to come back! (You can also bring your own lunch if you prefer)
