It's a long weekend in Canada ... I presume the Canadians here will be out cycling and travelling somewhere. Tell us all about it.

There are a number of long weekends coming up ... tell us where you've gone, post pics ... we'd love to see them.

first tour of the year coming up first weekend in june was going to do the new river state trail park in Virginia but no sites were available so me and a buddy are camping close to the VA creeper trail and hope to ride down and back in one day. then go the next day to New River trail and ride a bunch of it.

really bummed about not riding and carrying all our stuff but if weather is nice it will be a great weekend of riding. over a 100 miles is the goal!

I am leaving from my house on my first solo mini-tour this Saturday. It is for the weekend. I am riding 43 miles to a garden that I want to visit, then another ten miles to a campground. The owner was very nice and says he will find a spot for me. Usually on holiday weekends campgrounds in this area require a 3 night minimum. On Sunday I will have about a fifty mile ride home. I am thinking about stopping and having breakfast in a restaurant that I have been wanting to try.

This is a link to the gardens that I plan to visit, https://www.pickityplace.com/.

I completed my first solo tour. I had a wonderful time. The temp on Saturday was very hot. I did not realize how hot it was til I noticed on my odometer that the temp was 101f degrees. I was riding a hill at that point and the good part was that it was in a forested area so that at least the sun was not beating down on me.

The best parts of going for me was that I was able to go alone and do this completely on my own. Seeing the gardens, the flowers and place was peaceful and serene. I now know going forward I can do trips by myself. The owners of the campground went (in my opinion) above and beyond. I felt very comfortable and welcome there.

I was planning on going out for breakfast Sunday morning to a restaurant that I had heard about for years but never tried. I still have not tried it, because Saturday evening before turning in a couple invited me for breakfast Sunday morning. I ate breakfast with them at their site. They were an elderly couple and I enjoyed their company and food. The ride home was nice as I took a different route home.

So all in all a success. I am already planning on another trip in about three weekends from now.

with internet & GPS it's a lot easier now to scout out good routes. Drove to Elkhart Lake to see the Indy Car race & WI looked like great bike-touring country--later an article claimed Wisconsin was rated among best states for touring.

Getting lost is half the fun!

Just keep extending your usual weekend rides.

This weekend ride 25 km north and 25 km back home ... next weekend 25 km east and 25 km back home ... next weekend go south ... next weekend go west ... visit some touristy things along the way, explore a bit, discover ...

Then go longer ... 30 km north and maybe back home a different way ...

Then go longer ... 40 km ... 50 km ...

And next thing you know you're heading out to a campground 75 km away, staying overnight and returning home the next day. Your first tour. And mostly on routes you've become familiar with.

Sometimes one discover interesting new things though can be a PITA if it's hot & hilly & one's tired. Local area has an very complicated road system, it's actually easier to navigate on tours with the simpler routes.

Well this was my first short tour. Not sure what actually defines a tour, but this is my first overnighter on the bike, a 3 day trip. I wanted to do a bit longer, but not sure if i was up to it so I dialed it back and I was pretty tired and sore after the third day. It might be a very long time before I can do overnight trip again, so this trip was very special to me. I typically have my son on all my days off, just happened my ex's family had planned a cruise with my son and I had some vacation time I needed to take so went ahead and took vacation at the same time so I could do some things I normally couldn't with my son.

I'm not really keen on cycling on the open road, especially through cities so I utilized the great rail-trails we have around here. The Ohio to Erie Trail spans diagonally across the state of Ohio and is mostly complete. So I planned a few days along it's course spanning from Columbus to Fredricksburg (and back). Traveled 225 miles, far greater than I've ever done in even a week (still building up my cycling miles, but I'm primarily a runner). I planned to camp so brought all my gear along for self supported trip minus lunches which I ate in towns along the way. I also lugged along my dSLR and a couple lenses too. Could have packed much lighter and just stayed at some hotels but I'm a glutton for punishment. Took lots of pics, nothing spectacular just along Ohio's countryside and a few small towns. To not bog down this thread I'll just pick out a few...



This re-purposed trestle bridge isn't actually on the trail, but they converted this one for trail use to link the nearby trail which follows the right riverbank there to the downtown area in Mt Vernon.


Alco 0-6-0 coal fired locomotive #63 cosmetically restored along with tender, flatbed, and caboose sits trail side next to the Kokosing Gap Trail at Kenyon College in Gambier Ohio.


It's nice they let you inside this one, many of the controls do move.



Stopping for some ice cream at the Killbuck Sweet Shoppe in the very small town of Killbuck.



Ohio's longest covered bridge, over the Mohican River on the Mohican Trail which caters to horse and buggies on the right side, and the bridge actually has a rubber matting on that side for them.


Red-headed woodpecker in marshy area along the Holmes County Trail near Millersburg.



Brilliant evening sky over a cornfield.



Setting up camp.

Had a great time! Building up confidence both on the road stretches and just going solo self supported. The rail trails are pretty easy going but the stretches of road to link a few of them were killer. I mean super hilly, to the point I had to get off and walk a few of them. That worse section, between Gann and Killbuck, is supposed to be paved this year and next and get riders off the hilly roads there. Can't wait! But at least I got to experience the road and hills before the rail trail is opened there.

First Tour This Weekend!

I've never toured and I am dipping my toe in with a 4 day credit card tour. Riding from Richmond, VA to Blacksburg VA and back. Day one will be to Lynchburg which is 120 miles and day 2 to Blacksburg which will be 100 miles with a decent amount of climbing. 460 miles in 4 days. I'll be staying in a hotel in Lynchburg and in a friend's house in Blacksburg. I'll be riding my carbon road bike with a backpack. I'm going solo after two riding buddies backed out for reasons I will accept without giving them too much crap. Photos will be posted.

Well I did decide to lug along the dSLR and a couple lenses (and tripod which I never used). I took my smaller camera, my Canon SL1 along with 10-22 for the wide shots and 70-300 lens for the birds. Figured if this was to be my only big bike trip for quite some time I was going all out! I could probably have squeezed everything into just two panniers and used my phone for camera (it is actually pretty good) but I opted for my less used 'B' gear which is a bit larger, and it was a bit more than 2 panniers could hold so I went with all 4. The camera, 2 lenses, and tripod took up one of the front panniers entirely. Heck I could have done the credit card/hotel thing and probably packed all in the saddle bag. But I really enjoy camping, don't like hotels and spending lots of money, and like I said I am a glutton for punishment and just wanted to see how big of a deal hauling everything was.

Good luck @hokle cycler that is more than I can do back to back I'm pretty sure! Plus I liked not having a tough deadline hanging over my head to make it to where I needed to be. Allowed me time to take breaks and get out the camera now and then. I was actually just down in Blacksburg for work a little while ago, we visited the NWS.

So do I. I am flying to Missoula, MT on Tuesday to start an eleven-day, self-contained tour. (Ten days of riding, one rest day.) I am going to camp every night except for the night in Butte. I am getting a room there because the only camping around is right next to I-90. And I will have earned a bed and shower by that point.

So I cut this tour in half and only did two days. At the end of day one I realized I bit off more than I could chew and I had a little blister forming on my foot. In the end I did two days of 122 miles each day and about 5,000 ft. of climbing each day. I was carrying my gear in a backpack which weighed in at 8 pounds. I think the backpack was a mistake as I was hating it early on day one. I should have packed less and used one of the light weight seat bags. I need to downsize my photos as they are too large to post but it was an adventure and I saw a lot of beautiful scenery.

Still pretty impressive, climbing equivalent to over 20 Washington Monuments. Last weekend was really hot too. I see some commuters with med-size backpacks but a big difference between 10 miles & 244. Even if the weight isn't bothersome a backpack inhibits cooling & can shift around.

A friend and I decided to do a day ride up to the Coquihalla Summit from Hope. We beat the rain on the way up but encountered some on the way down. Also hit a strong head wind on the downhill side that had us actually pedaling in places. Kind of disappointing as I only hit 59kmh down to the snowshed but still a good excuse for laying around on Fathers Day

Short video here:

Just did a short 3 day trip from Yamaguchi (city) to kurashiki via shimanami kaido and Shikoku. Had to jump a train to cross the ocean part though.

No, but we did come across an accident that had just occurred. It was drizzling and I could see a guy sitting on the shoulder and said to my friend "I think there is a hitch hiker" which is weird on the Coke but when we stopped there were two guys who had crawled out of the ditch after their small SUV had rolled. Lucky they had seat belts on as the car was in the weeds and not visible from the road. We talked a bit and made sure they were ok and that 911 had been called (out of cell range at that point). Speed limit is 120kph and they said their transmission locked up.

My touring season is getting off to a late start this year, but better late than never. Heading to Wisconsin on Friday morning for a weeklong hub-and-spoke tour in the Madison area. We are staying in New Glarus, which just happens to have a nice brew pub and will be a great place to replenish electrolytes. We are alternating days riding on the roads and rails-to-trails. I've ridden there once before and it is a scenic area with nice roads and trails. Will post some photos later.

Later this summer, I am planning to ride the Erie Canal trail from Buffalo to Albany, NY, with several friends. We will be driving to Albany, taking the Amtrak to Buffalo and then riding back. This will be a loaded tour but we will be traveling relatively light because we are staying at inns rather than camping out.

120 kph seems kinda fast for the terrain, I dunno. the show makes the Coke look quite forbidding bike-wise (let alone driving) but most of show filmed in winter I think. From your video looks pretty nice for biking actually. I'd have to do some training, heh.
