    As djb indicated above, be prepared for some fierce winds. The Magdalen Islands (Iles de la Madeleine) are very pretty, but they are up there with Patagonia for the worst winds I've ever...

    I remember especially liking the biking along Keuka Lake. Watkins Glen the town was a dump, but Watkins Glen the state park was surprisingly pretty.

    The glass museum in Corning is excellent.

    I've had a Bike Friday for 14 years and have flown with it a lot. Depending on where I'm going, I've left the suitcase at hotels, guesthouses, with friends, and once in Mexico at a business. I only...

    I always found a guesthouse for the night in Laos, but in some rural areas, it was pretty rustic. One area was off the electric grid but there were still simple huts available. The route from...

    If you're really going to cycle in Vietnam, spend some time researching a route. Everything I have heard about cycling the main north-south road in Vietnam makes it sound hellish. Endless traffic...

    At this late date, I think the potential downside is far greater than the potential upside. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I rode the GAP and C&O on my Bike Friday folder with Schwalbe Marathon 20 x 1.50 tires. No problems.

    Syracuse to Asheville in 4 days while avoiding too much up and down. Sounds like a troll to me.

    Who has graduations in July?

    I have had no health problems at all during 3 independent bike trips in SE Asia, though as I wrote above, I brought both Immodium and Pepto-Bismol, just in case. I ate lots of street food and market...

    I biked the entire loop around Crater Lake on a beautiful sunny day in early September. (I drove up to the park, however.) It's a gorgeous but exhausting ride because it's mostly up and down with...

    I wonder how I managed to survive touring in SE Asia without half of that stuff (especially the food & drink) and no support vehicle? I've yet to find a place in SE Asia where it was difficult to...
