    If you could ride anywhere, where would you go?

    Maybe up the Yukon River in the middle of January.

    How about you?

    I'd love to see Texas covered with a network of moderately improved bike trails, with small towns every 20 miles or so, starting maybe with the old El Camino Real from San Antonio to Nachitoches. In my dreams.

    I'd like to go back to Italy and ride the same roads I did as a child. I had NO idea how good I had it back then.

    To Kentucky, where our boat is. It's about 875 miles one way.

    If I did ride down there though, I'd kinda like to not have to come back

    I enjoyed my ride in the MSP area back in September and plan on doing it again. It was amazing to be able to ride as far as we did, and the bicycle infrastructure there is amazing.

    No particular order:

    -Benelux, France, Northern/central Italy, Switzerland, Bavaria all in one loop
    -Thailand (did a bike tour from Chumphon to Ao Nang/Krabi last summer and it was beyond wonderful)
    -Vietnam (more rural than Thailand and thus even nicer to look at, though the people aren't nearly as pleasant)
    -Most of Great Britain
    -Australia
    -Montana near Glacier park

    And last but not least...I really miss summer tours in Southern NY and the Appalachians.

    California has been okay for all the tours I've done out here, but pales in comparison to what I expected when I moved here. I do have to say though that the microclimates and mini-ecologies have been interesting - it has great variety, so I shouldn't complain.

    I was thinking about Minnesota when I saw the thread title. I'd like to try the Root River trail. 42 miles long and you can continue on into Wisconsin, which also has some nice biking infrastructure.

    Although a tour from Amsterdam to Bruge sounds like a nice few days....

    I sure feel lucky when I see someone wants to ride where I get to ALL the time, except winter of course.

    as a tourist? a tour through the former yugoslavia republics. i don't even know how the trails/roads bike scene in there, but i spent about a month there and fell in love (with the place and a dude). gotta get back!

    This sounds romantic and adventurous. Can you tell us the story?

    Well to live, I'd choose either Copenhagen, Amsterdam or Montreal.
    To tour around, I'd say Croatia.

    You know, I'd like to do a Critical Mass ride too. But I always work on Friday evenings, which is when they're held, so I've never been able to.
