Paul,
The route along the north coast is becoming more and more cyclist friendly. The Spanish system of road improvements means that they construct a new dual carriageway/motorway leaving the old road system intact with very little traffic. Improvements are taking place all the time, so that any publication is likely to be out of date by the time you get there.
A lovely route - enjoy!
Blessings
Terry

Sounds good. I had read somewhere that there was a lot of motorway development but that some of it used the existing main roads. We shall see !!

A piccie of Spanish road building! This was taken near Salas on the Primitivo. The same method has been used along the coast. An investment of millions of euros! The only snag is that by car or coach one misses some of the spectacular scenery. However, on a bike you will have time to stop and stare. Having walked up some of the hills along the Norte I guess you will need the breaks!
Blessings
