I recently purchased an Air Friday folding bike and plan on doing some bike touring on the Mainland. I was an erstwhile competitive triathlete that had to give up running because of arthritis in my hips(age 65). Fortunately biking hasn't been a problem. I plan on doing a 120 mile bike race around Oahu in a few weeks and a leisurely (3 day ride) around The Big Island in Oct. I plan on doing a house swap in July next year for a month in Maine. I'm looking to do some bike touring first week of Jan. Any suggestion on the West Coast where the weather won't be too inclement.
