It is reported the cyclist is a diabetic and was suffering from acute
hyperglycemia at the time of his fall. An advisory has been issued to diabetic
pilgrims to be extremely careful with their Camino preparations and to avoid
taking any chances, particularly if they are cycling.

Buen Camino,

Hello William, :)
As a pilgrim/hospitalero/csj member who tries to do a little bit on this forum I am in awe of people like yourself who research and post important information for pilgrims - eg the recent difficulty re diabetes.
Many thanks for all your work for pilgrims on the forum, it is an encouragement to us all.
Best wishes

Brendan
