Here’s a tip; go to Neil Gunton’s crazyguyonabike.com, “a free, independent website for hosting bicycle touring journals, forums and resources”, and read everything you could possibly want to know about bike touring. Our most recent journal is this one about riding the Old West Scenic Bikeway. I suppose everyone who enjoys reading these journals has a favorite writer. One of mine is Leo Woodland. If you go to the CGOAB site, you may get sidetracked from whatever else it was you were doing. You have been warned.
