Road Trip Destinations?

Was reading the latest issue of BIKE magazine and the editors went on a 20 day road trip.

Where would you go? What are some of the spot you would want to drive to?

Me?

I love riding in Pisgah, NC, then over to CO, hit Moab and up to Tahoe. From there if I still had time and money, I'd keep going to B.C. and visit Maelstrom.

Hi,
pick a town that would serve as a really good place for a day off the bike.
I like Camden Maine, Middlebury Vermont, North Conway NH. They are all walkable, have good restaurants and a movie theater.

All you have to do is to make a trip with that as a stop somewhere in the middle. For example, you could ride around Lake Champlaign. Which is a real nice ride. You could fly into Portland Maine and ride up to Acadia National Park and fly out of Bangor. I have some suggestions if you do. From Conway there is the Kancamangus, the White Mountains, northern NH with perhaps a jaunt into
Canada.

Every year in August we take about a week and do a ride like that.

Heck yeah! Pick up different people along the way. End up with a 10 vehicle caravan by the time we pull up to Mael's house!

OK, here's the deal; you guys gotta swing the caravan through Spokane. From here, it should go north to Nelson, BC, then over to the wet side to catch Galbraith Mtn at Bellingham for a warmup and finally wind up on Maelstrom's doorstep at Whistler. Ahh, I could really see this taking shape . . .

West Virginia

I am going to New River West Virginia this weekend. It is pretty good for the eastern part of the states.
Quite a few trails to hit and the scenery is great..

I'm looking forward to some trails I know in the Pocono area of Pennsylvania. They're nothing extreme, but moderate long old logging trails around some lakes and through heavily wooded areas.
A very peaceful ride in nature.

I have a trip planned for Utah, but may have to push it back to next May.
