I have seen a guide in the German language and I know there is something in French but haven't seen anything in English. Something for thought, Lyon is a very large settlement to walk through 500,000 people and more living there, many bits not especially pleasant and sorry to say even safe though the center is marvelous and the food is amazing. Do plan to walk around and not through,

There is not a lot of stuff on the Internet on this route however here is what I had book marked previously when I was considering the trail myself. I have been told by others it is well doing and given the terrain and climate might be something to consider for Fall as compared to the Spring.
I don't think you will find a guide in English but I could be mistaken. There is an FFRP topoguide to the route, and I gather it is pretty essential to take an up-to-date copy of the guide put out by l'association Rhône-Alpes as that lists all your options for accommodation etc. See the yellow guide on this page: http://chemins.amis-st-jacques.org/?page_id=6 The route does not go through Lyon, (though there is a route from Lyon that joins onto the route from Cluny to Le Puy.)
I am planning on leaving on the Le Puy route and would love to have the spreadsheet. I welcome any advice.Travelling solo and have lots of time! I did the Camino from SJPP to Santiago in fall, 2011. I have been following your blog. It's great!
