Yes, I agree with Anniesantiago, walk with 2 liters of water, snacks, and as I have posted elsewhere, an umbrella saved me from the heat as a sunshade!
Also, it is a doable walk alone too. Quite the experience for me, and I recommend it.

As the others say, it will be hot. We've walked the madrid twice, in May, 2009 and 2014. It is now my second favourite camino, with wonderful albergues , mostly not crowded, often just us, and the signage so good a guide book is barely needed. But sorry we won't be able to join you this year.
Buen camino.

Thank you so much to everybody!
I would like to know if it's possible, for a girl like me, do the Camino alone and if someone of you had problems because I read that the Camino, till Sahagun, it's very lonely.
I'm not sure to do it by bike or by feet. Is it possible by bike too?
What do you advise to me?
Are there many albergues?

Do you think it's pobbile to do a part of Camino de Madrid and then do the last part of Camino de la Plata? I've already done the Camino Frances and I would like to do another way, not from Sahagun.

Hi Martina, When I walked the Camino de Madrid, the only other two walkers I met turned west at Simancas and joined up with the Sanabres around Zamora. They had figured out two days on back roads. Once you get to Toro you are on the Levante, and from there it's a day's walk to Zamora, which is where the Sanabres starts.

If you want to stay all the way on the Madrid till Sahagun, you can then walk (or bus/train) from Sahagun to either Leon (Salvador/Primitivo) or Ponferrada (Invierno). Both of these options are very nice, and I hope to be repeating the Invierno this year.

I have walked the Madrid and other untravelled caminos alone, sometimes meeting up with others, but sometimes just being totally alone. I've never worried about it or felt threatened, yet I understand how recent news reports would cause some anxiety. I leave tomorrow and will have about 9 days alone before meeting up with someone, on another one of these untraveled caminos -- the Cami St. Jaume from Llanca to Montserrat. I haven't felt nervous or worried. I think the best thing is to try to keep in mind that the Caminos are not a hermetically sealed bubble where crime is banned, but at the same time it has got to be one of the very safest places in the world. Let us know what you decide to do, and buen camino!

p.s. The Camino de Madrid has an excellent albergue system, really terrific.

Hola, Martina!

I thought that you have read some of the previous posts/journals on Camino de Madrid but now I think it's kind of obvious you didn't :)
You can find it all here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/camino-de-madrid.45/
Of course I would recommend Laurie's posts (@peregrina2000 - you can read her blog on CdM - link in her signature) and mine :D (@KinkyOne ) from last year. Also @Phillypilgrim walked the route in 2014. There are already posts from this year from @Undermanager and plans to connect CdM with Levante/VdlP/Sanabres from @MichaelNW .
If you'll get through these there will be very little left for additional questions but ask anyway ;)

Ultreia!

I prepared a lot for this Camino. Read through all the posts (as Kinyone suggests) and make your notes on the CSJ guide and expect to walk and be alone for 15 days. You may meet others, in which case you are lucky! I did meet a bicycle Pilgrim once. He was fluent in English so I REALLY enjoyed my time talking to him one evening. Other than that, I crossed paths with a Spanish couple for three nights in the albergues. They were great, but spoke no English. That was it.
