    I was on vacation when y'all were posting on this thread, so I'll chime in now.

    I'm riding the Tour de Nebraska in June (5 days, 300 miles) and the C&O Canal (184 miles from Cumberland, MD to DC) sometime in the fall.

    When I rode the Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska (BRAN) in 2006, I decided that 7 days on a bike was too much for me, so I'm limiting my future trips to 5 days max.

    Going to Phoenix next week to compete in the Arizona Senior Games - 2 time trials, and 2 road races in 2 days. Hoping to do well enough to qualify for the National Senior Games in San Francisco in 2009.

    Finally had the reservations confirmed for the first half of the July 4th week on Cape Cod. For a rider from Inland CT to spend days just riding around the beaches (even if crowded by people and cars) is enough to warm up the rest of the winter. We may also take the bikes up to ride around the Cape Cod Canal trails given enough time and good weather. Most of my beach riding happens around 6-7am before the roads get clogged.

    Bicycle trips in 2008.

    Planning three bicycle trips: Katy Trail (Central Mo 5 day solo ride) in April; if I survive the Katy Trail ride, I plan to do the Erie Canal Tour (8 day ride) in July: and Tour de Tucson in the fall (always a great ride). Retirement is good.

    If you do, PM me. I live within 2 miles of the KATY just a few miles from the St Charles end.

    She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
    When the train pulled out, that mule laid down and died
    But I'm crazy about her, that hard headed woman of mine

    My traveling days are continuing. Was in Minnesota in September, Seattle/Vancouver/Olympic NP in October, Florida in January and am now finalizing more travel plans:

    Chapel Hill, NC in mid-March (may ride with my daughter a bit around Carrboro/CH)
    San Francisco from April 20-27 (primarily a business trip, no bike or car)
    Lanesboro, MN in early May (cycling-focused trip)
    Canton, OH & Morganton WV in mid-June. (hope to ride in both Ohio & WV)

    Part of my plan to use more vacation this year.

    I will probably do just the Florida Bicycle Safari in April in Live Oak, FL and Cherry Lake, FL. Riding up there is a whole 'nother world than Central FL. For some reason the motorists tend to be courteous up there.

    [QUOTE=Tom Bombadil;6131296]I'm planning on several. As I wrote before, I have a lot of vacation to use this year, will be taking about 8 weeks off in total, not all as weeks, some will be split into multiple 4-day weekends.

    No organized rides ... there aren't many of those on bike trails.

    Bikeflorida.org is on bike trails this year.

    I was planning to ride from Chester County, PA, to Los Angeles, CA, this summer, but the money for the trip isn't there. So I'm planning on that for next year. This year I'm riding from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC, via the trail/towpath network, with my buddy Neil Fein, aka "neilfein" here on Bike Forums. This adventure starts June 1, and we should be in the capital by the end of the week.

    Since Neil and I call ourselves the Neils on Wheels Bike Touring Team, we have a number of short tours in the works. In April, for instance, we are riding from my home to Green Lane Park, 40 miles away, to camp, and then ride back the next day.

    No cycling vacation, but a couple of short vacations with a cycling component.
    New York in early May for the Bike New York, visit parents and spend a few days in the city and out to Long Island.
    Another parent visit in September for the New York Century, followed by a few days up the Hudson and visiting friends in Connecticut.
    And in next February, a return to San Francisco. Same as four years ago - while my wife is attending a conference I rent a bike and ride across the GG and up into Marin.
