I gave up on try to organise group rides years ago. Some of the problems I encountered were in people being totally unprepared (this happened after one of my rides was featured in the outdoor...

I'm not thinking of 2016 until I'm finished with 2015. I'm probably heading to Thailand at the end of the year for a few weeks exploring the northern part of the country. Then I'll start thinking...

Depends where I am, and how long the tour is going to be. I've cycled through typhoons in Japan and Taiwan. Then on my three-month ride across Europe a couple of years ago, I took quite a few days...

Personally I wouldn't worry about North Korea until things change (dramatically). I did some research into that one last year, and while it's definitely possible (and probably a lot safer than a lot...

At least three Australian states have seriously discussed the issue at government level in the last 15 years. There was a big thread here about California discussing it several years ago, and I've...

Apparently more observant than you were reading my post in this thread. I never claimed the facilities in Germany didn't exist. I even admitted to using them. I simply pointed out that if I had to...

Pal, I was in Germany six months ago. I don't need to "exaggerate" anything, I saw it for myself. I could quite happily ride recreationally in Germany, but if I had to live there, I'd get a car for...

That's pretty much nailed it in one post, and as a life-long cyclist, I think it's great. The last thing I want is to see a heap of people on bikes who don't really want to be there, interfering with...

Riding the same suburban route to and from work everyday can be, and often is, as boring as batsh!t. For me, commuting on a bike is simply a means of saving time and money, which then allows me to...

This issue really has been done to death on these boards and elsewhere, and it will never be properly resolved here because you're dealing with egos, and egos refuse to "lose" the argument. On the...

These days I no longer have the ego to be terribly concerned about "converting" the rest of the world to biking. I'm far more concerned about making life easier for those of us who are already doing...

I've been to NZ twice, and I can vouch for what Machka said. It gets *very* cold there -- even in summer. Looking at your dates, my advice would be do the South Island first (i.e. April) before the...

I certainly wouldn't be keen on riding somewhere that I felt the need for six armed guards. Especially when you consider the number of other places one could ride in the world.

It's entirely possible. I actually quite liked the city centre. Set aside an entire day to explore it and could have spent more time there. The Alcázar was particularly impressive.

My map reading skills worked fine just about everywhere else.

I highly doubt this is one of them. I haven't been here for over a year, I come back and the same three monikers dominate the board. Why would anyone pay someone to argue with three people?

Unfortunately, your city centre (nice as it was) was also one of the most difficult to access by bicycle when I cycled across Europe last year. You might want to consider that, too.
