    This is a great site! It shows the elevations along the way which is really helpful. We will book our accommodations ahead and I will be able to search for lodging that let’s us charge an eBike. Thanks Corned Beef!

    All good questions Barbara. I’m the forward scout for this as I walked the Frances in 2018 and seven of my friends joined me for one week of it starting in Logroño. Those same friends all want to do another week and would like to start hiking in...

    What does your friend have to say about it? I think she is the one to be on this forum, involved in the planning. What I can say is that if by the ,"first seven days" you mean SJPP onwards you are choosing to start with a very hard day, but that...

    E-trike? Would solve both the uphill and balance issues to a certain extent. Other than that the EV1 route goes along part of the way of the Frances. May be worth a look

    Yes, we’ll need to get transport form SJPDP to Roncevalles, but hoping to start the biking from there. The info you gave me is exactly what I am hoping to gather to assess what’s possible. Knowing that N-135 and NA-1110 are the route will help me...

    I can’t answer your question as I’ve always walked, but I’m pleased that you and your associates are asking the question. Many people have overcome difficulties beyond my comprehension and completed the Camino Frances, so I assume the answer will...

    #1 - My experience is that the Camino always finds a way to provide. #2 - Sounds like you and your friends have quite a set of challenges. I know people bike from Roncevalles so, of course, it can be done. As I recall, the road to Zubiri was a...
