    First tour with a toddler

    Well, I caught something nasty last week and sat around the house not wanting to move or do anything, so what better time to update my crazyguyonabike journal?

    We skipped a couple of summers, but...

    I've never bagged on Lance before and have always given him the benefit of the doubt over the years, but I'm really disappointed in the lack of help for Levi and effort toward the team competition...
  5. Trying to confirm... wil a Garmin 305 work with a Trek/Bontrager Duotrap?

    If' I'm not concerned about a power meter, can a 305 be used with the Duotrap to continue to log HR, speed and cadence? I can't find anything definitive, and I see information that would indicate...

    Late to this, but the Escape is great for two bikes plus gear. We rented one a couple years back. Even with my 63cm frame all I had to do was pop off the front wheel of each bike and the seat posts...

    I'm late to this, but we did this in 2007.

    * Hwy 1A was not bad at all when we rode. It was later in the day. Few RV's. The only real "scary" vehicles were some large trucks near Canmore. ...

    Been a few years since I used them, but I used http://www.sportsexpress.com/ to ship my bike. They used FedEx. I first read about them in one bike publication or another.

    My wife and I did the ACA Green Mountain Loop in 2006. I thought it was a great trip. Vermont drivers are the best. New York on the other hand.... It wasn't awful, but it was remarkably different...

    I was thinking the cost to fly my wife and I and all of our gear to another continent as being the cost prohibitive part. I can do two weeks of comfortable touring in the US/Canada for the cost of...

    We drove through Glacier on the way home from the Icefields. Nice, but definitely only a day long in comparison. We drove part of the San Juan Skyway this year and it seemed awfully busy and...

    The San Juan Islands are on my list to consider, especially if I can combine them with Victoria and the Olympic Peninsula via ferry.

  14. Does anything compare to the Icefields Parkway?

    Didn't do a road tour last year and I missed it. :(

    This year, I need to do one, but what compares to the Icefields which we did in 2007? I can't imagine any route compares, but I hope...

    We have the most idiotic governor in the US and one of the 5 most ineffective bureaucracies in the States. Yet Illinois folks keep re-electing them.

    My first advice... don't do it. Anything but a major US Highway. Granted, here in Illinois, I-88 picks up a lot of US 30 traffic, it's still not the best/safest bet.
