    I only use a Camelback when I tour, no bottles. I wear it on my back. When it is hot, I fill it about halfway with ice. Often, the water is so cold that I have to take small sips. As bikemig...

    I can't speak for the America the Beautiful pass, as I don't have one. But, I do have a Senior Passl (I'm over 62). It is only $10 and lasts for life, an incredible deal! I have used it to get...

    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.

    Not the OP, but as a vegetarian (40 years, this year), I didn't want to buy a leather saddle either. Instead, I tried a couple different ones and never really liked any of them. On a tour from SF to...

    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...

    I use it when I ride in towns to alert people making left hand turns in front of me that something is coming their way. People looking for cars won't see people on bikes or on foot.
