    Which part of the word "generally" do you not understand? Most of Flanders is quite flat.

    Flemish-speaking Belgium is generally flat. French-speaking Belgium generally has rolling hills. The Belgian railroad website is multilingual and easy to use. Here's a bike page:

    Entrance fees for cyclists are typically less than for cars, so $80 might not be a good deal for touring cyclists unless you are visiting a large number of parks, and/or there is more than 1 touring...

    I visited Colombia last year but wasn't touring, though I biked in the department of Boyacá. I was in Bogota and a few departments to the north. I've done a fair bit of research about touring in...

    I've never had any great desire to bike across N. America east-west or west-east, for precisely the reason you cited. I have, however, biked from BC to California, and from Colorado to Jasper NP. ...

    Venasque is a pretty hilltop town ENE of Avignon. It's not as touristed as the hilltop towns in the Luberon (but cycling in the Luberon is wonderful). From Venasque, I biked along the Gorges de la...

    It's an easy, flat ride to the impressive Pont du Gard west of Avignon.

    St. Remy-de-Provence south of Avignon would also be an easy daytrip.

    Arles is a nice town SSW of Avignon.

    Nice video. Are the passes on the Via Claudia Augusta (the Fern Pass and the Reschen Pass) entirely bike paths so there are no cars to worry about on those passes? Is the bike path surface as...

    You didn't say what time of year you want to do this trip. Please be aware that southern Spain is brutally hot in the summer.

    I've toured in northern Spain and in Portugal, but not southern...

    It's a route to get from A to B, but there are much more pleasant and scenic areas to ride in the region, IMO. BTW, early October usually has nice temperatures and the leaves will still be green.

    Personally, I can't get excited about that route. If you're not obsessed with riding every mile, how about the following route which maximizes the nicer parts, IMO:

    Fly into DC. If you fly to...

    I rode it in both directions and I don't recall one direction being superior to the other. The most difficult climb was going north up Sunwapta Pass (as Raybo said), but it was a relatively short...

    I would follow fietsbob's idea or imi's first suggestion. Although Alsace has some very nice areas for touring, the Rhine valley from Strasbourg to Frankfurt is dull, IMO.

    I haven't experienced any extra flex in the mast on my Bike Friday. Maybe it's a Dahon issue.
