    My rough plan is a loop from Rapid City. To Spearfish then through Spearfish Canyon to pick up the Mickelson Trail south of Lead to the end in Edgemont. South from there into NE, possibly stopping at the primative campground at the Toadstool site if the dirt road is rideable, then to Ft. Robinson S.P. before heading east toward Chadron an then turning north back into SD to Hot Spring and then maybe Custer via SR 87 and U.S. 16A.

    My touring partner and I were all set to start the Sierra Cascades route on September 2nd, and then the forest fires started. We switched last week to pedal again down the Pacific Coast. This will be my fourth trip from here, Aberdeen WA to S.F., but it is such fun. Hilly, but fun.

    I'm getting ready to do a week+long swing through central New York State with another member of this forum. Finger Lakes, "Leatherstocking Region", possibly as far north as the Adirondacks. Camping in State Parks, a few Warmshowers hosts, taking it easy, not covering any awesome miles.

    The bike is packed!

    Nice. Just did my second Bon Ton Roulet last month. Some nice riding up in the Finger Lakes. Hammondsport is an especially cute little town.

    Just did the length of South Korea. When I return to New Zealand in December I plan on touring round the North Island (no real goals, just want to reconnect after 12 years away) for 2-3 weeks. Not worried overly about destination other than I want to ride down 90 mile beach and pick up a few spots a went as a kid.

    Leaving for my second "long" bike tour on Sept. 27, riding Cycle NC from the mountains to the coast. I have ridden several days of CNC on a number of occasions, as well as their spring weekend ride, but never the whole week-long fall tour. The route this year is very nice from Sparta, NC, east just below the Virginia state line to Edenton, and then south to Manteo and Cape Hatteras on the Outer Banks. The entire ride should easily top 400 miles, averaging 60+ miles a day. This is a supported tour, so the organizers carry your gear from town to town along the route. I plan to camp most of the way.

    North Carolina Amateur Sports

    Originally, I had planned to ride a loaded-tour loop through Coastal NC and the Outer Banks. However, when I saw that the CNC ride this year was ending at the Outer Banks, I decided to do that instead. In addition, several of my friends are riding CNC, but I was having trouble recruiting riding mates for the loaded tour.

    In June, I rode the GAP-C&O Canal trail from Pittsburgh to Washington DC with friends. This has been a very wet and rainy summer in the Mid-Atlantic states, so we were very lucky that it was so dry. I highly recommend this trip for cyclists looking for a week-long tour that is largely free of traffic. We stayed in hotels and inns along the way, and carried our gear in panniers, but campsites are available along the entire route. Total riding was about 400 miles including our side trips to towns.

    We started in DC, parking our car at relative's house and riding our loaded bikes to the Amtrak station downtown. We took the train to Pittsburgh, unpacked and reassembled our bikes, and rode to our hotel in the middle of the night. We toured downtown Pittsburgh on our first day and then headed down the GAP trail, averaging about 60 miles/day. It was just a great trip and we are already talking about doing it again some time.

    2014 touring plans - Hope to make another trip in the Everglades National Park -- from the park entrance to Flamingo which is the end of Florida on Florida Bay. It's roughly 40 miles. I've done the ride previously with my daughter and a second time with my niece. This trip will be with another niece and whoever else wants to make the ride. We have to wait until the weather turns cooler otherwise the mosquitoes will pick us up and carry us away... It's a fabulous ride --- unlike anywhere else on the planet
