    Biking in Yosemite

    I am leaving (temporarily?) northern California soon, so I am trying to visit most of the sites I missed. I have been visited Lake Tahoe before, but never biked it. Did the loop today. :thumb:

    When I mention the difficulty of transporting gear, I mean the bicycle and clothes. If I start off my trip in Africa, but not on the tour, what do I do with the bike in the meantime? At this point I...

    Thanks for the response. The idea for this trip only started 2 weeks ago, so I really have not fully formed the idea in my head. My initial thought was not to bike exclusively, but to backpack...

    No double centuries for us. :)

    Tour de Fuzz is the only close ride, but I am trying to find a couple of transfer. I would be the perfect ride.

  9. Any century rides next weekend (13th/14th) around the Bay Area?

    I have of mine in that area has never done an organized ride. He needs to! :)

    If nothing is happening, we might just bike around Lake Tahoe.

    Thanks for the links. I live in California, so I am definitely not interested in California bike tours. :) I will be traveling during the northern hemisphere winter, so North America and Europe are...
  11. Exciting bike rides around the world with easy rentals?

    When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade! Taking a sabbatical from work/life and going to travel. I would love to combine my love of biking with my travels, but it seems tough.

    Do not think...

    Thanks everyone. It looks like I will not be able to combine my love for biking with my ambition to explore. I do not feeling like carry bike equipment around with me. Even if I were to backpack...

    I guess asking about supported tours is a no-no in this forum. :)
  14. Seeking suggestions for bike trips (in particular supported tours)

    Thanks for all that responded to my previous thread "Can a road biker transition into touring?"

    I decided that I do not have enough time to become a full-on "tourer". My plan is to travel...

    I am a spandex wearing roadie that averages about 4K miles a year, with a fair amount of climbing.

    My life is changing and I want to take a sabbatical from it all. Would I be in shape to hop on a...

    Portlanders: do you ride in the rain?

    I understand that it may be a stupid question, but I am serious!

    I will be moving to Portland next month. I lived most of my life in NYC, where I was mainly a bike commuter. It wasn't until I...

    Like I assume many here, I tend to ride in the right hand turn lane instead of on the shoulder on roads where those turning right is minimal (if at all).

  22. Anyone doing the Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge?

    The 200km is equivalent to the Death Ride. I am "only" doing the 100m route. :eek:

    That's my conclusion as well. Since the route is somewhat known, I would simply organize it myself, but I live nowhere close to SF.
