    Balad Air Base Iraq

    I'm headed there in February 2009 for 6 months.

    Has anyone been there within the last year that can give me a heads up on the possibility of cycling there?

    Thanks,
    Blade

    At the base in general, or round the country itself?

    I think SD Fixed spent some time over there courtesy of the US Navy.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I'm not sure which base this is, but it looks like they do ride bikes.

    Don't you have a sponsor to ask? Or perhaps call the rec facility.
