    While it isn't a day ride from Avignon, I'd highly recommend riding down the Gorge du Tarn. For that matter, check out any of the other gorges in the area.

    I stated my reasoning. If you choose to live by a different set of rules, so be it. Judging others by rules you set for yourself doesn't usually go over well. It certainly doesn't with me.

    I only drink coffee when I tour, as much for the buzz as for any endurance effects. I don't pack it. I drink it when I get breakfast. If it isn't available, I go without.

    I like the idea of riding out of Richmond, VA and going north. I've only been to Richmond once and, it turns out, a good friend lives there. The distance is about right, as well. I'm sure I'll have...
