    Wannabe Tourer

    I have registered today on Bike Forums. I am interested in touring but have never done a bike tour. I am near retirement and am really looking forward to having some time to bike tour in the USA - especially Alaska. I run, swim, lift and bike to stay fit.

    Hi JoeMan, the folks in the Touring Forum will be happy to talk to you about touring. I have yet to do any touring, but I love reading that forum just because there's some happy, helpful people there!

    Where are you in Oregon? Say hi to us in the PNW regional forum, too.

    Welcome to BF!

    I live a bit south of Portland. Is there a link to the PNW forum?

    Here's the Touring forum. http://www.bikeforums.net/touring/

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle
