    My plans are not too ambitious. Start from home. Ride to one of our state forests that provide winter cabin rentals. Spend one night. Ride home. Probably would cost about $60 for the cabin (and some...

    Thanks.
  3. Not finding this in any searches I've done: Who has done winter (cold weather) tours?

    The winter cycling forum has plenty of advice for clothing but not much for overnighting at below freezing temperatures. The touring forum uses the winter months for the cycling equivalent of...

    Many in the musical worlds of the Pioneer Valley and southern Vermont were shocked to learn last week that David Tasgal, a talented and accomplished musician on multiple instruments, and an...
  5. Anyone ever taken Amtrak to/from Havre, MT?

    I'm trying to figure out an accessible midpoint between the west coast and Duluth, MN. I envision finishing a "section" ride across the continent if I can string together two ~1000 mile legs over the...

    I'm a long time hammock user and had made my own tarp before there were many designs to copy. It has a diamond shape and it was the right size for a slightly smaller hammock than the one I now use,...

    If you are still on US50 as you get closer to Cinci, you might consider the reverse of my route this summer. Take the Anderson Ferry to the KY side and ride in through Covington and Newport. Cross...

    Route 8 it was. I rode along the river until I got to the Anderson Ferry, crossed to the north side and returned to Cinci. By far the most pleasant riding was on the Kentucky side. I couldn't help...

    I just spent a week in Cinci and thanks to a bike loan got some riding time in. My impression of the roads on the Kentucky side of the river was that they were much less heavily traveled but had some...

    I didn't get that impression from Bradford, "King of Keene" as he referred to himself. Just a very nice guy who had some unfortunate events in his life. There but for the grace of God go you and I.

    In the summer of '11 I was looking for a bike path in Keene, NH and stopped to talk with another guy on a bicycle to inquire as to its whereabouts. The long and short of the conversation was that I...

    Same here and also for use on gravel with no complaints (when I can run it softer). I'm into my second pair. The first seemed to wear more rapidly than I expected but I also used them for year-round...

    Been there, had that. I believe it is what is called "handlebar palsy." In my case it was usually the result of multi-day tours using mt. flat bars. After a late summer ride of 1000 miles I would...

    The truckers themselves pay the price at times. I passed one spot where the westbound lane was shut down and that lane and the shoulder were strewn with the cargo of a very mangled semi. Not sure...
