If everything goes according to plan (and I can manage to buy all the gear that I think I need), I will be doing my first tour late this summer. 70 miles NW of Minneapolis to Chicago or western Michigan.

I can't wait.

Finishing a tour from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean - 2,000 kms will take me to Tuktoyaktuk in the North West Territories (Canada). This includes the (in)famous Dempster Highway - 740 kms of gravel. Then I'll have about a month to tour Alaska, including Fairbanks, Denali and Anchorage.

I'm ON tour right now actually. Across Canada: Victoria to St. John's. Right now I'm sitting in the office of a dodgy motel I'm staying at in Brandon, Manitoba. I'm taking a longer route than most, hitting all the provincial capitals of Canada on my way, and going out of my way to see neat stuff I hear about as I go along. So far it's been 3300km.

I'm on day 32 right now and have had headwinds ever since I got out of the Rockies (today was only the second day of tailwind) and I've spent 17 days in rain... despite it all, I still love the trip. The whole thing has been an amazing experience. Good luck to everyone setting out!

Was going to return to Maritime Canada and ride Newfoundland and Labrador but getting married and moving to Canada instead. So our honeymoon will be a six day tour starting in my soon to be home town of Nelson BC, to Kaslo, Trout Lake, Nakusp and back to Nelson. If you have never been to this part of Canada, you owe it to yourself.
