    summer plans!!

    Is anyone as excited to start riding as I am, already planning a small weekend camping bike trip the last weekend in March. Is anyone planning any great trips?

    Since the work situation is grim this year we thought we'd ride. Lots.

    We have a 1000 mile/4 week loaded tour planned to explore southern and eastern Utah in May. We will do a short overnight tour before then to try out some new gear.

    I just signed up for a century ride in Logan, UT for early June.

    It looks like we will be doing Bicycle Tour of Colorado, a week long supported tour in mid-June. We've never done a supported tour before. The first day is 106 miles over Slumgullion Pass. We should be in pretty good shape by then.

    We did a 30 mile road ride yesterday. Gotta ride as much as we can now to be ready for all the fun!

    Four weeks in Newfoundland and Labrador during iceberg season. Just made a reservation for one of the boat trip today.

    I plan to do the 2500 miles of the Sierra Cascades route. The scenery promises to be amazing, the route goes through 7 national parks, and it looks like my daughter will join me.

    Coast to coast across the US. East to West. Leave Mid-June. Got a friend who's riding with me from NC to St. Louis. Then I go alone via the Katy and ACA (or close to) TransAm route, part of the Pacific Route to San Fransisco. The general route: http://tinyurl.com/ylzle46

    Sounds like good times ahead. Should be an interesting and scenic route.

    I've been planning an Alaska by penny farthing for about 5 months now. Should be leaving Montana in May, arriving in Deadhorse, AK around end of June / early July and then back down to PHX, AZ around September-ish. Perhaps finishing the GD after that, on the penny, but we'll see.

    1) I could swear we just did this. Oh look ... we did: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...4-summer-tours
    The post I've linked to is only about 15 posts below this one ... at least read the titles on the first page before posting.

    2) Summer is almost over. Early in April the winter rainy season starts.
