    New Hope, PA to Brooklyn, NY. You start in farm and horse country and end up riding through urban and industrial areas to Hoboken, NJ, home town of Sinatra, baseball and "The Cake Boss." Ferry ride across the Hudson to Midtown, down the bike path along the river, past Ground Zero if you desirte and then over the Brooklyn Bridge. Shower at a nice hotel in Brooklyn, dinner and then watch the sun set behind lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty from the B'Heights promenade. Done it at least ten times now. Always a blast and something different.

    Pacific Coast Highway on California's Central Coast, closed after a landslide. No cars, no RVs, no traffic....just peace, quiet, the ocean and the open road.

    No idea but he was there last year in another one of my videos. Ther is a small airport (Cable Airport) near us where they host pleny to of airshows. I guess he was training. I tried to get there sooner as he was doing more stunts but when we got there, he left.

    I came up with a nice loop ride ... it took me a lot (months?) of exploring to find the most scenic way to go through town, with the right amount of hills. I go down Lake Washington, around Seward Park, up Beacon Hill, over the Chief Sealth Trail, and back home. I picked up a book of 50 best rides in and around Puget Sound, and found my ride in the book, going in the opposite direction around the loop.
    Don't believe everything you think.
