    I'd rather spend those 35 hours cycling around my local area in preparation for the tour.

    Once on the tour, I can spend a few minutes sorting out where I want to go each day. The route takes care...

    First of all, it's rare I start a tour from home. The opening entry is often at an airport somewhere.

    Secondly, I usually post a few days after we've been somewhere, and we're long gone.
