The Greenwich Meridian Route can be done either unaided, or with the help of an organisation that can take care of all the necessary arrangements, without your having to concern yourself about anything. It is your decision.
You can also do the route in various stages, over different months, or even over different years. There is no obligation to do everything in one go, though we believe that this is perhaps the most satisfying way to do it; contemplating a continuously changing landscape and enjoying the full experience of the Greenwich Meridian Route.
Reasonably fit and experienced mountain bike riders (who are able to cope with a variation in altitude of over 700 m in one hour) should be able to complete the route in about 7 days, though 8-10 days would be more comfortable. Those travelling on foot will probably need around 18-22 days, and those who wish to do it by road bike will require 3-5 days.
The route can be divided into various sections and these can be downloaded for free from the website.
Remember that to complete the Greenwich Meridian Route you will also have to cross the Sea of Aragón by motorboat.

From Zaragoza and Lleida, take the bus or train to Barbastro (various options) and then go from Barbastro to Torla by bus, via Aínsa (leaving for Barbastro at 11:15 am and 5:15 pm and arriving in Torla at 1:10 pm and 7:10 pm, respectively, depending on the day of the week). This return journey will require two days and one night. For more information, consult: www.alosa.es www.hife.es and www.renfe.es
