    One difference between the USA and many European countries is that Americans are not issued "ID cards". French citizens, for example, are issued a "carte d'identité" and are supposed to have it on...

    I said absolutely nothing about "the people of the State of Arizona". I cited the legislature. I'll cite the current governor, as well, because she has signed a lot of the absurd legislation.

    Considered too dangerous by whom?

    I believe those signs were put up by the state of Arizona. That's the same state whose legislature has passed all sorts of absurd legislation in recent years.

    My first choice would be the Dordogne & Lot valleys in SW France. You could start in Bordeaux and head eastward. The scenery gets more and more gorgeous. Burgundy has some very nice paved trails...

    I also recommend getting a bit away from the Rhine and into some of the gorgeous villages of Alsace. The following website has a map and information about the "Route du Vin" in Alsace. The villages...

    The weather in western Europe is quite variable. It is certainly not reliably warm and dry in the summer unless you're talking about southern Europe. I've had hot and dry weather in the summer in...

    I think you'll be fine with those tires. I was riding a folder with 20"x32 tires. I recommend fenders.

    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...
