Empowering The Bicycle Traveler

Crazy Guy on a Bike

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.

    Love your comments on being a misanthrope (Ed Abbey taught me the word). You and I tour for the same reasons. I’m reminded of a Peanuts cartoon from decades ago (yes even Charles Schultz had his moments) where Charlie and Linus are dangling their legs off a dock at a clear mountain lake. Charlie looks up at the sky and says, “Humanity’s OK. It’s people I can’t stand.”

    Hey Ken,
    Great to meet you at ‘the pass’ along the Blue Ridge Parkway….you said it was a two month sojourn from San Diego, destination DC…and then Siberia…and etc. The plans sounded exhausting, but you can do it! Thanks again for your cheery smile and lasting through a waterless trek across the Arizona desert. Watch you,
