      My introductory posting. I rode the Portugese Central Route from Porto to Santiago in September 2022. My wife and daughter walked it. When they told me they wanted to walk the Camino for vacation I was a little dismayed—because I thought they...

      I use an ebike on the Camino and take it on trains and I prefer to use the rustic trails and not the highway. I don't see why this should be a problem for anyone. The Camino trail is a public route and open to anyone. Many Spanish cyclists use...

      I meant of course the "fight or flight" response which we have little control over. A rider will always try to avoid an obstacle since most are fixed but the pedestrian also has an almost automatic response to avoid another moving or threatening...

      meaning, at a certain point, we are the tourists to their community and they are the locals who pay the taxes for upkeep and such. We may consider ourselves pilgrims and all the meaning that we put into that word, but to the Spaniards, we could...

      Skinnybiker replied to the thread Cycling SJPP to Roncesvales.
      There are luggage transfer services all the way along the CF with plenty of info on this forum. The main service in SJPDP is ExpressBourricot, all the info is on their website. Presumably they don't expect peregrinos to reach Roncevalles much...
