Wondering which of the several routes between these two towns is best for cycling. It looks like taking the N-VI would be the least steep, although a little longer than some other routes. I figure we'll be walking our tandem bike a good part of the way no matter which way we go!

Yes. You will. Though the published route should be fine provided your 'stoker' is doing their job ;0)
Unless the herd of cows would come from the opposite direction in that typical Galician dug-in-path ;)

I haven't researched alternatives. The N6 goes where you're going by the shortest viable route for a tandem from what I can see on the usual sources. Sometimes the Camino just sets bumps in our way; all we have to do is ride over them.

I rode the N-V1 on this part of the route last year with a few other bikers and it was almost deserted because the A6 runs parallel. Not sure if you can take a bike on the A6 because it is a motorway. Its a long hard climb, I think it took me about 3 hours to get to O'Ceb.

You can ride on them. A's and AP's are forbidden for bike riding/walking/hitchhiking etc.

PS (N in N-V1 stands for National and it's not highway in European meaning.)
