    Cycling VdlP: prevailing winds?

    A quick question for all the VdlP experts on here: my wife and I plan to cycle the VdlP, leaving Seville mid September 2018. Is there a prevailing wind direction? It makes a big difference on a bike. I am guessing/hoping that if there is a prevailing wind, it will be S, SW or at worst W, ie off...

    I am a 75-year-old male who is currently cycling the Camino portugués and posting daily blog entries of my experience. I'm cycling during August 2017, but I will leave the blog up when I finish, because it may be of use to others who are considering doing the same. If you check the blog out well...

    Cycling & Walking the Camino de Santiago 2017-02-20

    In early 2014 we visited our friends Jessica and Nigel, and the Camino de Santiago came up in conversation. They had just completed it but we had no idea that it even existed until they told us about it. We learnt that it was a famous walk that started in St Jean Pied-de-Port and finished at...

    Biking the English Route

    I'm considering biking the camino; but am interested in both the Northern and English routes. I know cyclists have to bike the last 200 km which eliminates the English route since it isn't that long. If a person were to cycle 100 km or more of the Northern route, and then transfer to the English...
