    Where have you cycled?

    I have a little goal where I would like to cycle in as many provinces, states, etc. in as many different countries in the world as I can. Over the past 3 or 4 years, the numbers have been adding up!!


    Canada - British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario

    US - Washington, Oregon, California, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois

    Australia - Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, ACT

    UK - England, Wales

    France


    I'm hoping to get Montana and Idaho in, maybe this year, or maybe early next year. I'm also hoping to perhaps cycle in some of the eastern States and Provinces toward the end of next summer.


    In what countries, provinces, states, etc. have you cycled?

    Good thread Machka. I have a goal of doing a century in each of the 50 states. So for this year I did 3, but the are all in Colorado. I have one scheduled for Indiana in October. Also, I have a goal of doing one century every month. Since I just got my bike in March, I will start that goal this January.

    By the way, great report on the Last Chance. I live in Colorado Springs, and have driven across Kansas and Eastern Colorado several times. It can be pretty bleak. But at least it's flat.

    Learned to ride, then learned to ride in snow and ice in Woodbury, CT (balloon-tire Columbia cruiser); introduced to wide spectrum of cycling at school in Watertown, CT (road bike, English 3 speed, traditional British rod-braked roadster); went on trips to the Cider Mill near Vassar in Poughkeepsie, NY (English 3 speed); nearly died when left-crossed by a cager in Seattle, WA (road bike).

    Today, I commute and run errands in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC (European city bike). When on vacation on Ocracoke Island, NC, we rent bikes (modern cruisers) and trailers (Trail-a-Bike for daughter, InStep Turbo Trailer for beach gear).

    Scotland.

    I have a goal of riding in all 50 states. So far I have Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Conneticut, Maryland, Virginia (the first one I rode in outside of the 4 Corners area and my first tour), Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa (bleach! ), Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado (of course), Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Washington, Oregon and California. That's 26! I'm half way there!

    Have you been following me? Wherever I ride I keep seeing a phantom in my rear view mirror. Is that you?

    Hmm... I've never kept track of states or provinces, but here goes, arranged by continent:

    Australia
    England
    Wales
    Netherlands
    China
    Hong Kong (before it became part of China!)
    Canada
    USA
    Chile
    Argentina
    Brazil
    Ghana

    I don't have any particular goal to cycle in different places, it just happens occasionally.

    Could be. Several times, a wild-eyed cyclist has blown by me mumbling something about pie.

    Mid-Atlantic: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, North Carolina and New York and Washington DC
    New England : Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts
    West: Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, California, Oregon and Washington

    I've ridden a few miles in Quebec. I was in Idaho on the bike when I did Cycle Oregon a few years back (we started on the Oregon / Idaho border), but I only rode one bike length there, so I can't really count that.

    I think that's it.

    USA: California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Virginia, Florida. There might be more -- I've been to 40 of the 50 states but I haven't biked in all of them.

    Outside USA: Just Japan, I think.

    So far, only Eastern Canada, from Sault-Sainte-Marie to St. John's, Newfoundland. And with young children at home, my territory won't expand soon.

    US-- PA, OH, FL, WI, WA, WY, WV, OR.

    I loved cycling in parts of South Africa, but there are many drunks, high speeds and wide tandem state-owned beer trucks and smaller width roads.

    South Africa, -- Grahamstown, Cape Town, Joburg.
    Zimbabwe--Bulawayo to Victoria falls.

    Id like to bike in China and New Zealand some day.
