Cycling Camino de Santiago September 2020

Part of French way
Hi everyone. I’ll start cycling the camino from tomorrow (Northern way) starting in Irun (the Albergue and tourism office are closed btw). I am
cycling regularly but am not sure how many km are doable per day. I’ve read that the first bit is really tough on some sites but others say around 70km can be done. Can anyone give some advice please? I also need to find accommodation along the way where I can store the bicycle as well. Is that difficult these days and is it always necessary to book in advance (knowing that walkers have preference)? Thank you very much.

Can be done if in really good form. I can't. YMMV as they say.
hello all, my wife and i are starting the camino in Lisbon on the 19th September 2020 , we will be on a tandem bike not really suited to very uneven surfaces, is there some of the route that would be suited for us to cycle on maybe we can dip in and out on certain areas? we are going all the way to Finisterra.
we also require help with getting our bike boxed when we finish we are cycling back to porto and plan to be there by the 4/5th October as we fly home on the evening of the 6th can any one recommend a bike shop that offers this service in porto any help is much appreciated
