Touring over the Holidays

I am looking for an organized tour over the Xmas holiday season. Willing to travel here in the US, but not over seas. Any ideas? Would appreciate any thoughts? I am an expereinced Cycle Tourer, willing to do either loaded or supported. Thanks Bob

California coastline?
I'd steer clear of Washington and Oregon because of the rain at this time of year.

I'm doing the HI-USA Christmas trip, a supported loop tour out of San Diego between xmas and new year. It's very inexpensive and includes bag transfer, SAG, breakfast and dinner. It's 55 to 100 miles per day.

If you are interested I can give you more info tonight, and if you decide to do it, please PM me, i can give you lots of details and would also ask you to give my name as a referrer.

Valygrl- Thanks for the HI USA info. I checked this out and it looks good. Made my Hostel Reservation, will reserve a spot in early Dec for the ride. Seems that there are about 50-70 people who do this, and it seems like a good time and away from the rains of Vancouver/Portland area. 100 mile day, semi loaded is my only worry. Thanks again for the info. I found this ride and made my air and Hostel reservations before I posted my question on Bike Forums, otherwise I would gladly say you referred me to the ride. See you in Dec
Bob
