This cyclist pilgrim ends her blog with a question:

Would I do it Again?
Here's the part were I’m going to waffle considerably. Yes. I'd already decided on day 2 or 3 of my Camino that whilst cycling was a good way of doing the Camino you shouldn't do it in as little time as I did. The whole point of the Camino is to enjoy your surroundings, the Landscape is stunning in some sections and subtle in others. The people are also a big part of it and whilst I met lots of cool and interesting people, it was only ever very fleeting.
The other big part of the Camino, and I know I might sound sadistic when I say this, is Suffering. The pain you feel makes it all worthwhile. In a weird way it imprints everything into your memory. If it was all-perfect weather and nothing hurt then I wouldn’t have anything to write about.
The Cold, the Rain, the Wind and the Pain were all constant reminders that I was doing something out of the ordinary - something I'd chosen to do and I was damn well going to finish it.
So Hell, see you in Seville in a few years time. Ill leave the bike at Home and join you Hard core Walkers.
