    The bike that took me from gasping at 4 miles to 400 miles weeks, a Cannondale Adventure 400, is "Broom". (Picture Margaret Hamilton in The Wizard of Oz.)

    And my titanium bike, the one that then...

    I'm still deciding on what my summer solo tour will be -- most likely at this point is a ride from Boston to Bar Harbor.

    In March, I'll be going to the island of Lanzarote (one of the Canary...

    Let's say I'm already convinced -- looking for USB power, rather than to directly power lights. What's a good resource to look at to figure out all the bits and pieces I'll need?

    A few years ago, on my 2nd bike tour, I was riding from Vermont into Montreal along the Route Verte. I had a Garmin 60sx for mapping; it ran on AA batteries. I also had a smartphone, but given...

    6 acres IS the entire island.

    My descendents will be cursed for 1000 generations if I harm a tree.

    Hey, I know it's weird -- but as an excuse to build a tour, it's probably better than the...

    Fair question, but not something I'm worried about. They set up a company to buy the land (and pay taxes, etc); then just assigned one square foot to me. My one square foot isn't registered...
  8. Touring near "Hawaii 2" / Liberty, Maine / Cards Against Humanity's Private Island

    I unexpectedly find myself to be the co-owner of a private island in Maine, and I'm thinking about visiting my estate as part of a bike tour this coming summer.

    Some background -- the folks in...

  11. 2014 MS Society City to Shore: the Hawaiian Print Challenge!

    Hey all,

    It's that time of year again, when I ask friends, family, and random passers-by to donate money to the MS Society. I'll be riding 175 miles the last weekend of September -- and through...

    It was indeed.

    I spend most of my BF time over on Clydesdales & Athenas, so that's where you can see the write-up:

  15. Assorted comments

    I used Bikeflights to ship my bike from Philadelphia to Seattle. They contract with FedEx Ground, as near as I can tell, and give better prices than I'd be able to get on my own because they get a...
  16. Day 7: Raymond to Ilwaco (49 miles, 1460 feet climbing)

    The last day. Many of us didn't want the ride to end, but the time was coming to head back to "the real world". We were asked to finish the ride by noon on Saturday: that would leave time for...

  18. Day 6: Amanda Park to Raymond (93 miles, 1888 ft climbing)

    At 93 miles, our last full day of riding was also our longest. "If you want to do a century, just double back on the route; we'll be looking for you. Slower riders should please be on the road by...
  19. Day 5: Forks to Amanda Park (65 miles, 1942 ft climbing)

    Thursday's ride was as straightforward as it could get: turn left out of the park in Forks; ride along Highway 101 for about 65 miles until you reach Amanda Park; turn left into the high school...
  20. Evening in Forks

    Forks was the first town on the route where we set up camp somewhere other than a schoolyard. Because we were no longer on school grounds, we were allowed to have alcohol at the campsite that night....
  21. Day 4: Port Angeles to Forks (66 miles, 3176 feet climbing)

    By the fourth day, I was moving through the ride with a predictable rhythm. I'd wake up around dawn; get dressed in my biking gear, with arm warmers, leg warmers, and a jacket; then bypass the hot...
  22. Day 3: Resting in Port Angeles

    And on the third day, we rested.

    Some of the riders found it odd to have our rest day come so early in the week. By stopping in Port Angeles, though, the riders could do more than merely rest. ...

    The ride this year ended in Ilwaco, where the Columbia river meets the Pacific Ocean. I believe that next year, they're planning a ride from Ilwaco to Walla Walla, tracking the river upstream; 2016...
  24. Day 2: Coupeville to Port Angeles, 70 miles, 3621 feet climbing

    We really did wake up at 4am that morning, to be able to be at the ferry at 6:30. The sky was dark, and mist had settled over the island. By the time I had gotten dressed for the early ride -- with...

    Not a drop of rain the whole time I was there. In a way, I felt guilty that the weather was so good; I felt bad hoping for dry weather when the more central and eastern parts of the state are having...
