    Audio Tours...........

    There is something about audio that is uniquely appealing. It's great simply to lie down and relax, close your eyes, and listen to a good tale.

    It feels as if the brain is relieved of all the visual stimuli, and imagination is freer to roam.

    (Video can be great too, and so can words in pixels or on paper; but audio doesn't get as much play, in the touring world, and it's a welcomed change of pace sometimes.)

    Here's some audio by an out-of-shape former serious athlete, who told her boss to get stuffed, and took off on a long trip,

    taking off on tour:

    Niles,
    Thanks, we have been subscribed and listening to bikescape for over a year now. It is a great show and we would love to an interview when we ride through San Francisco in a few months.
