    Greetings from the tundra

    Hi everyone! I recently found this great forum and finally have a chance to introduce myself. I live in Western WI which has a wonderful network of lightly traveled country roads for riding. I've been a life-long road cyclist reaching my mid-century point but improving with age. My bikes are all mid 80's vintage (Bridgestone 400, Trek 400, and a sweet touring bike built up from a Specialized Expedition frame), but I'm in the market for a new light tourer for sagged trips. I'm leaning toward a Sequoia Elite and have a post asking for anyone's experience with them. I'm pretty much into recreational riding for fitness and get out on some type of cross state week long tour every 2-3 years, and dream of doing a trans America (at least in sections) some day. Glad to meet you all.
    Bob

    Hi, welcome to the forum!

    I'd be interested to hear about the bicycle touring that WI has to offer. My girlfriend lives in Lacross right now, and we're starting to plan a 1-2 week long cycle tour for this summer or early fall. Any good websites you recommend? Thanks.
