    Planning a summer cycling vacation

    I've enjoyed other friends' photo reports of bike holidays, and I hope to offer up some reports and pics of the thing I've just booked

    Vienna to Budapest, alongside the Danube but with some hilly detours. 6 Days @ maybe 60 miles pd

    A few months before we take off - it'll be late August. Yipee

    Using rented bikes, which simplifies transport - Trek FX 7.3. Spouse love the 7.5 she's used here, and I find it hard to keep up with her, so that should be just fine.

    I can't wait

    On your own or group ride? Sounds heavenly.
    Georgia state law stating that bicyclists “May Use Full Lane” when lane widths are not wide enough for motorists to safely pass cyclists and stay completely within the travel lane. (now all I have to do is convince GA drivers to read the law).

    WOG: Why not set up a blog and give daily updates/reports? Just an idea....

    Bump. No pictures yet - I'm just back from the airport, and the camera needs to be re-charged.

    A great trip. Highlights - watching the Olympic bike race rehearsal in London (Cavendish won!), using bikes to take a little day trip from a great pub/hotel in Suffolk UK, and riding alongside the Danube for a week in VERY HOT weather - and that's coming from a Middle East resident!

    Many great things about the trip, and I fully intend to add photos and short descriptions - but one of the most impressive things was how bicycling is treated in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, as a welcome and primary part of road usage.

    More later
