The question was:

We will by cycling from Burges to Santiago and then we need to get back to Burgos. To do so, we need to load our bikes on a train or bus. [Is this possible?]

I want to bike the Camino Frances, what is a recommended itinerary?

The question was:

From what I’ve heard and read, it sounds do-able – averaging about 50km a day. I have a rough timetable and it seems fine but I’m a little worried about Burgos to Leon – it’s more than 200kms and I am planning on doing it in 3 days. Does anybody know if this is too ambitious or is that stage relatively straightforward?

Bikes the Camino in 24 hours

Most pilgrims walk from Roncesvalles to Santiago in about 30 days, Julián Sanz has decided that he would like to bike this distance in 24 hours.

Why stop at albergues when your first bed is ready and made for you in Santiago?

So, this Saturday he will start in Roncesvalles and with his  support-car he hopes to be in Santiago some time Sunday. El Correo Gallego reports today that he will be using a gps device on his bike, so that it will be possible to track his progress on his website: http://www.juliansanz.com/es , but at the moment this website does not seem to be down.

I guess he is still a pilgrim, in his own way. Although many will probably disagree… at least he does not take up space in the albergues along the way 🙂
