Oregon. Co-Motion Classic Tandem Stage Race.
This summer we're going to Austria and Germany for some nice riding. And probably another trip to Norway as well. Have to seek out those mountains...
The Rockie Mountains!! going to tackle the BTC. something like 500 miles in 6 days up and over two 10,000 foot passes. i better get to training. later.
davis, ca for the Gold Rush Randonee 1200k in july.. it'll be my first time riding in CA or even going there in fact, and my first 1200.. it's gonna be an interesting ride.
that and i might pedal to our 400k brevet next month, which is way out in ephrata, east of here. it would be 150 miles and a mountain pass on friday, then a 249 mile ride on saturday. i'll probably need a ride back though!
i generally avoid traveling far to get to rides, but these are my exceptions this year.
I bike going to the Grand Lake Stream folk arts festival every year;the last weekend of july.The best jass/ bluegrass/folk mix of music ive injoyed also the crafts /arts/fine wood boats of this festival are top notch.I have yet to make the trip to the Quebec Arctic and IF I didnt get to New Brunswick Canada it would be the first/a very friendly beautiful area./Kenneth
Northern Italy. The Stelvio and Gavia passes, and the 7 passes on the Maratona dles Dolomites. We will be staying in Trento, Italy and wondering around for about 3 months.
hello audeojan/ It sounds a wonderful trip Ill be hopeing your able to keep us envious and informed!!/Kenneth
btw, if you're doing the gavia, you really should do the mortirolo.
Doing the typical touring here in Colorado and may do some riding in Utah, CA, and Nevada this summer. Might get to Maui again this year too. Weather kept us off the mountain last trip.
I've already taken my bike to Chicago, Oahu and New Orleans this year already. Pretty much everywhere I fly to I take it if I can get two rides in. The airline charges are beginning to suck though. Anyone know a way around them?
I shipped my bike back home from N.O. via UPS because of the fees.
I've traveled quite a bit with my folding bike. There are no extra fees unless it's over the weight limit. Once it was for me because I packed a bunch of other stuff in the case. This year I've already gone to Arizona with my bike, and next week I'm headed to Louisiana for some riding. Then Bike Virginia and a few more in-state rides. Hopefully next year I'll be in a position to take my bike to Italy to watch the Giro and ride there.
Driving to Sharpsburg PA with a youth group, then spending a week riding/camping/sightseeing along the C&O Canal Towpath to DC and back.
Going to Indy for the Tour de Cure in June around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I might ride there (~70 miles), might not.
Take your bike!! Lots of great cycling around there and it will give you another reason to eats lots of pasta. The local bike shops are a good place to get some ride info. I rode up Fiesole and then onwards with a local club...round trip approx. 100k. Very friendly group and a very scenic ride
This is the Bow Valley Parkway between Banff and Lake Louise. :)
I have been charged by Air Canada and Luftansa in the last few years. At least Luftansa has a "bike rack" option on transatlantic flights, but it doesn't count if you connect. That means I would have to cycle in Frankfurt...
Which airline are you finding doesn't charge? I am seriously interested.
Air Canada only charges $50 compared with $150 or something like that which the US airlines charge. Quite a bit cheaper. I've flown with them several times and would again without hesitation.
My husband has flown Thai Airways, and they don't charge for bicycles. He said it was quite a nice flight.
I'll have to double check, of course, but Qantas appears to be free as well.
The information on the above site may not be 100% accurate because airlines have been changing things quite frequently recently, so it is always best to check the information from the airline itself, but it might give you some ideas.
here's some pics of the river. (and one gratuitous shot of my cute kid).
Georiga - BRAG in june. Need to thaw out after survivng my first winter here in the frozen tundra.
Machka, you are right that AC is more reasonable, but most Americans have a hard time booking them to places like Europe. One thing to keep in mind, is if you are on AC, but book through United, you pay United's fee.
I haven't brought a bike to Australia yet, but since I am tied to United (living in Denver), I need to stick with them whenever I go to Australia. Those miles are enough for status right there and that gets you free economy plus for the year.
I'm not travelling there *to* cycle, but I'll be doing some cycling around Santa Fe, maybe Albuquerque, NM this summer.
