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.

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.
