Veazie, ME is the place I call home. A lovely little village along the Penobscot River in the Eastern/Central part of the state. Bangor is the closest "Big City" and the place most people have heard of thanks to Roger Miller. Bar Harbor, the most well known tourist attraction, is about 65mi east. LL Bean, the next most popular tourist attraction (some think it the most) is about 100mi south. The biking here is a mix of Fantastic and Pure Hell. We love it!
Yeah Bar Harbor is about 3 hrs North of me,yeah been up there riding also.Great!!! Something closer to me check out this web site of Mt Agamenticus in York County. There is a trail map of the Mountain.Beautiful ride especially this time of year with the leaves changing. http://www.armba.org/index.html As a matter of fact I am headed there right now 75 deg sunny sure will be a great day up there!!!

Spokane and "The Inland Empire"
Yo Trudy!, and whoever else wants to see what Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho have to offer, try, http://www.northdivision.com/
"North Divison" is the web site of a local bike shop, inside are links and tabs that have pictures/photos to local rides-(i.e. "Autumn Century"), and sites for local clubs that also have pictures and links- so you can get a feel for the area. One of the links, The Spokane Bicycle Club, has a link to a site, related to Spokane, that has photos and information for points of interest etc. in parts of three states and Canada!
Have Fun in the "Inland Empire"
Johannesburg, South Africa, but have been busy in other countries for five years now. Just finished the organisation of an Iternational Mounain bike race in Saudi Arabia, to promote tourism, for one of the Royal Family members.
Home of the Masters golf tournament and James Brown. Great climate, low crime rate, low cost of living... but full of *** toting, tobacco spitting rednecks driving high stepping 4X4 trucks, WWF wrestling star wannabes, and folks from the US Northeast escaping the winter snow.
Don't group me with this bunch, though... I grew up in Paris, XV Arrondissment, Blvd de Grenelle. Living in the American southeast is for me an ongoing cultural anthropology experiment.
