    Of all of the places I've toured (about 3 dozen countries), my absolute favorite region is southwestern France, particularly the Dordogne & Lot valleys. You can do a very nice arc starting in...

    There's only a very short stretch which is used by many commuters. For the last couple of miles as the C&O Canal towpath approaches Georgetown in DC, the towpath is parallel and just a few feet from...

    BTW, I imagine the reason for fees at Great Falls (MD) at the C&O Canal is that it attracts a large concentration of visitors, and almost certainly has the largest parking lot for any place along the...

    I was incorrect about Great Smoky Mountains NP fee (but correct about fees being assessed at Shenandoah NP and at the Great Falls, MD entrance to the C&O Canal park). I found the following...

    BTW, there is no entrance fee to North Cascades NP in Washington state, and no entrance fee to Redwood NP in California. I have both biked and driven a car in each.

    Your information is flat-out wrong. Fees are most certainly charged at many NPS sites east of the Mississippi. For example, there is already an entrance fee to the Great Falls, Maryland, area of...

    djb, the C&O (Chesapeake & Ohio) Canal goes from Washington, DC, to Cumberland, Maryland, a distance of 184 miles/297 km. It is adjacent to the Potomac River. It was constructed in the 19th century...

    Why do you like the Erie Canal route much more? I've only ridden the GAP, so I can't make a comparison.

    I flew Western Airlines (later bought by Delta) on domestic flights years ago. They would give you a large plastic bag for your bike. On one of those flights, they pretzeled one of my wheels. ...

    There are a bunch of threads about touring in the Maritimes. Personally, I liked Cape Breton, but was disappointed with the rest of Nova Scotia. PEI was OK, but the Madeleine Islands were better...

    One minor annoyance I had while touring in northern Spain was the hours that bakeries were open. They typically opened later in the morning than elsewhere in Europe. I usually had to buy bread in...

    I want to finally bike the Pine Creek Trail in northern Pennsylvania this year.

    I hope to go touring in Colombia, but I'm guessing that will have to wait about a year.

    Don't pass on what you "heard". Pass on what you know. In this case, that appears to be nothing. Denidog lives in Mexico and bikes in Mexico. She's there now, in the present, not in 1984. I've...
