    I've biked the C&O, and I also grew up walking distance from it. I learned at a young age that the towpath stays muddy much longer when temperatures are cool/cold, than it does in the summer. For...

    I haven't toured around the Gaspé (yet), but I toured in the Madeleines, PEI, and NS. My friend and I loved the Madeleines, but the winds there are routinely very strong. PEI was OK, but overall...

    I posted a link to the following site about 10 years ago:

    Our Top 25 World Bike Destinations - Ride The Road

    It's a somewhat dated list, as the situation on the ground has changed in some of...

    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...

    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...
