Time of past OR future Camino
May 2024
I'd be grateful if anyone walking or cycling the CDN could advise the current ground conditions, what effect has the rain had on the surface.

Thank you and I hope you are all having an amazing time. We are leaving tomorrow. Buen Camino!
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.
Hmm, most of the cyclists route on the Norte is on tarmac or other paved surfaces. You really wouldn’t want to take a bike over Purgatorio or many of the other coastal & off-road alternatives. Unless you like carrying your bike that is..
Tincatinker is absolutely correct: most of your ride will be on roadways. The few downhills suitable for a bike are muddy right now in the Llanes area, but the CdN is 800+ kms so it’s impossible to tell you the conditions over the entire route or when you eventually reach an area. Where you might find mud, there is always a nearby roadway
