Newbie (here - not to touring) from Boston
I've not done a personal tour since major surgery three years ago, but still bike to school (at 64) and locally. I've been leading group tours (and riding my own) for over 25 years and now drive the sag van all the time instead of sharing it with others. Perhaps my favorite part is scouting new routes for my riders, and I came here with an Adirondacks question for this August's tour, but no answers yet.
