Welcome back all summer tour riders!

I just got back from 3 months on the road (Portland, Oregon to Providence, RI trhough the northern tier of states.) Hope all of you regular contributors had a NICE SUMMER, and welcome back to all of my fellow riders who went out this summer.

I just got back from 3 months on the road too (Victoria, BC to St. John's, NFLD along the provincial capitals). I guess this is about the time everyone wraps up eh? Welcome back all! Man I love touring!

It's nice to hear that you had a good cycling summer. I also had success with my own tour. In June I did my first solo ride from Switzerland to Sweden. It took four weeks and I had the best time of my life. I'm looking forward to reading travelogues and seeing photos from other cyclists. I've posted my own travelogue of the trip, some photos and a Google bike map. I'm now looking forward to some shorter tours in the fall. Cheers, chris

Three months for me, too! Still can't believe it. Just the regular old trans-am, but what an amazing experience. Journal here: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/circumtrektion

Ha. Every now and then I look at the crazyguy site and just about everytime I ended up looking at your journal. Nice job.

Congrats to all that toured over the summer. Post more links. I can't get enough of them. My turn is coming...summer 2007. Can't wait.

Thanks! I'm still adding text. It was tough to keep updated from the road. Try this one if you want some really well-written reflections on episodes encountered by one European along the Trans Am: http://www.lesontheroad.blogspot.com/
