How many countries have you biked in (and what are they)?

This goes along with the thread on where you have lived--- but brought more into context of the forums

I have biked in the following countries:

Costa Rica
Ecuador
USA (VA, MD, WV, CA, CO, FL, PA, DE, NJ, NY, VT, NH, MA, CT, SC, NC, GA--I think that's it...)
Canada
Basque Country (Spain)
Colombia

train safe--

I have to admit, only one country......this one. It seems that when I was elsewhere, biking was not a possibllity. Pity, it would have been fun.

Precious little for me. I've only bicycled in the US and not very much of that.

I guess that I just don't get the travel thing. I had a traveling job for 22 years and pretty much hated all of it.

U.S.
Canada
United Kingdom
Mexico (cough, cough...all of it around Mexico City; lots of air pollution)

This summer I plan to add Peru, and possibly Bolivia.

And, I rode a horse in El Salvador; does that count?

40 years ago in the forces and Iceland- Norway- and Spain. There always seemed to be some form of Clunker on the bases I was posted to and I always seemed to get it.

But since taking up cycling it has been very conservative with France and England. But as I rarely go anywhere else- it is not surprising.

I know, not as extensive as some others, but I just want to get in a plug for Denmark which is about as cycle-friendly a place as you could want -- as long as big climbs aren't on your wish list, that is...

Quite a few, I'm surprised to count!

I've worked as a pretty mobile organisational training bloke, and I've tried to include cycling wherever I've lived and wherever I've had assignments

So:

UK - England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
Europe - Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland
Poland, Lithuania, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Tenerife
USA - California, Boston, NYC, Washington DC
Indonesia - Jakarta, Bali
Sydney, Auckland, Christchurch
Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan, Oman

No Indian continent, Central or South America or Africa yet. There's still time

2 so far, if St. Croix, USVI counts as a different county, otherwise just one - USA. As for "other worlds" just Kansas
