Where are you travelling to cycle this year?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Where are you travelling to cycle this year?

Where are you travelling to cycle this year?

Where are you planning to travel to cycle this year?

Are you off to Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, South America, North America ... for a tour or for an event?
Are you heading to the other side of your own country for a tour or event?

Where are you going, when are you going, what's the event?

I have my two cross bikes sitting in a container in a warehouse in Dalian, China, waiting for me to unpack them.

Most likely going to visit my family in Quebec near St. Jerome and try and plan some rides out there. Man if I could find some races out there it'd be so fun.

Already been to western CO for a week this year. RAGBRAI in July. Will be going to WI a lot this summer for MTB races. Back to CO for MTB nationals. Once CX season hits we'll be all over the country hitting the USGP series and to Bend, OR for nationals.

I used to ride to Bird's Hill Park every couple weeks when I lived in Winnipeg ... it was only about 50 km away ... made for a nice ride.

Riding Mountain NP is a great place to ride ... I love the rollers coming back from Dauphin ... after the climb.

And Logan's pass is actually in Montana. Here are some photos from my trip there last summer.

VERY different from Manitoba!!

How's the flood situation? Doesn't sound as bad as '97 yet ... that's a good thing.

I'm going to Napa to do the Tour de Cure - my wife's tagging along to drink wine.
We get away from the kid for about four days and have a good time.
Being from OC, it's an easy road trip.

Back home to Idyho I hope. Haven't been back since 96, and haven't ridden my bike there since the 70's. I'm shipping my backup bike ahead to my Dad's place, and will probably leave it there so I'll have some incentive to visit more often...

No dedicated cycling holidays planned.

Have cycled to Malaysia (which is across a 1/2 mile causeway and about 30km from my front door )several times, Indonesia (Bali) and China (Beijing) this year. Home trip to the UK later this year and Perth (Australia) for Christmas.

That should be it. Work travel is minimal this year and we're expecting a baby any day now so cycling will take a back seat (hurrah!)
