|Across North America on a Yellow submarine
tour started July 2009, submitted 18 August 2009
The lack of traffic brings wildlife closer to the road. He sees two cranes, some kind of partridge with a crest on its head, a fox and a strange black creature the size of a big cat with long fat tail (a wolverine maybe?). There is also a bird who sings refrain 'We all live in a yellow submarine'. This becomes a hit for the rest of the tour, especially the beginning 'In the toooown, where I was boooorn, lived a maaaaan, who sailed the seeeeeas', as this is all Mr. Iik can remember from the song.

|From Oregon to the Yukon
tour started 2007, submitted 11 March 2009
Two months of cycling from Portland, OR to Whitehorse, Yukon in four segments. 1) Solo- Portland, OR to Seattle WA via the Pacific Coast. 2) Solo- Victoria, BC to Cortes Islands, BC to Vancouver, BC. 3) with Nick C. and Stacy: Vancouver, BC to Port Hardy, BC via the Sunshine Coast. 4) with Nick P. Prince Rupert, BC to Whitehorse, Yukon via the Cassiar Highway.
The first three segments were very civilized with camping in state/provincial parks and beautiful summer weather (except the occasional rain storm). The final segment was 12 days of intense cycling (100+km per day), rustic camping, many, many bears, but some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever cycled.

This cycle journal describes my trip from eastern Washington state, through the central basin area of Oregon, across Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Kansas to the Missouri border. Most of this route follows the Adventure Cycling Association Western Express route, famous for it's long distances between towns, food, or water. However, the less traveled central basin of Oregon presents even more challenges requiring careful planning.

|Cycling from Argentina to Alaska
tour started November 2008, submitted 6 April 2008
Two Poole based intrepid travellers are setting off on a journey of a lifetime to raise funds for a local charity, Julia's House and the international charity, SOS Children's Villages.
Kelly and Dave will be starting in Ushuaia, at the Southern tip of Argentina in South America and will cycle to Alaska, the extreme northwest portion of the North American continent.
They anticipate that they will be on the road for up to 2 years, facing extreme weather conditions and the challenging terrain that the American continent has to offer. They plan to cycle the world's driest desert and the high altitude mountain regions of the Andes.
By doing the trip by bicycle they are hoping it will bring them closer to the environment and learn about the ever changing world that we live in and aim to leave minimal impact upon the environment.
|Transcendental Transcontinental - Xcountry USA
tour started August 2004, submitted 3 March 2008
Website includes travelogue, gear, planning, 50 (USA) State Bicycle Coordinator summary page, beer sampling, etc.
I also took the opportunity to sample beers from across the USA. When you are riding your bike across the country, beer is guilt free. It's called fuel, and it tastes good, too! At the end of the day, nothing replaces those vital body fluids better than beer - water works OK, too, I guess.
You'll find that some state bicycle coordinators are better than others. Wyoming and South Dakota coordinators were topnotch! Clearly, they were real bike riders not some pinky office donut eaters.

|Journals of a few modest bike tours in the Western US and Canada
tour started January 2007, submitted 4 December 2007
I live in Berkeley, California and my friend John lives in Los Angeles. Since 2003 we've been getting together each year to do a modest 7-12 day bike tour. Our criteria include, if possible, light traffic, beautiful scenery, reasonable odds for good weather, and no more than 80 miles between indoor accommodations (so we don't have to lug camping gear). The journals of other bike tourists have been so helpful in planning these trips I thought I should share ours as well. As of 2007 we've ridden on the Oregon Coast, the Central Oregon High Desert, Wyoming (Yellowstone NP, Teton NP, Wind River Valley), Sunshine Coast of British Columbia and Vancouver Island, and Southwest Utah (Zion, Bryce & Capitol Reef NP).

|Viaggi in tutto il mondo. In auto, a piedi ma soprattutto in bicicletta.
tour started 2007, submitted 11 September 2007
Sono rimasto stregato dalla bellezza della Terra durante le lunghe camminate effettuate nelle ``mie'' Alpi o i brevi sentieri percorsi tra le migliaia di cascate del parco di Plitvice in Croazia. Ho avuto la sensazione di poter rallentare lo scorrere del tempo nelle interminabili giornate in sella alla mia amata bicicletta, percorrendo le strade sterrate nel mezzo della pampa patagonica così come salendo e scendendo per le dolci colline toscane e siciliane. Ho anche imparato ad apprezzare la capacità, l'ingegno ed il genio artistico umani, visitando alcune splendide capitali europee, la vivace Rio de Janeiro, le caotiche San Paolo, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, la surreale Las Vegas e la inarrivabile New York.
Tutto questo cerco di raccontare nelle pagine del mio sito web.

|The tour Home
tour started December 2006, submitted 29 May 2007
Last year I decided I wanted to go home for Christmas, but I previously stated that I would only leave Orlando if it was under my own power.
I spent seven days covering the 610 miles between Orlando Florida and Birmingham Alabama.
The page tells some of the highlights and realizations I encountered along the way as well as a map showing some of the places I stayed, I think this trip was a great warm up to my eventual goal of riding across country one day.
|Bicycle Tour 2k6
tour started May 2006, submitted 11 May 2007
We are two cyclist from Chicago who have taken a year off to ride a large part of the U.S. perimeter and some of coastal Canada. We have only a rough plan of where we are headed at any time, and spend nearly every night camping or with people we meet along the way. Our only goal is to see interesting parts of North America and meet the people who live there, so you will notice our journal is less about riding than the places we've been.
|Bicycle tour from CA to VA
tour started May 2005, submitted 21 April 2007
The plan is to pedal from Southern California to Virginia, or Canada if we don't feel that 3,200 miles is enough. Barring accidents, failed joints, or break-ups, we'll get to dip our tires in more than one ocean. We hope to succeed or fail before August.
|Banff, Canada to Montana, USA - Back Country with Lodging
tour started September 2005, submitted 25 February 2007
This trip had riders and non riders alike. This might be the most beautiful experience in Canada that any American can have. Even the cabin in the woods (which outside of no electricity and running water, was phenomenal - see pics from day 3) was impressive. Non riders could hike in and out to this location, or spend 2 nights in Elkford. Only the motel in Elkford was modest - even though it also had high speed internet. The remaining accommodations would all be rated 3 or 4 stars, yet were very modestly priced. While food selections were limited in some locations, the food was outstanding in others. All in all, I would not be afraid to take even the most seasoned traveler on this trip.
There is a button that details each day of our trip. Lots of pictures, my diary of what happened each day, and I've posted both the original itinerary as well as the packing list (which turned out to be just right). The map we used was from the Adventure Cycling Association, and it was right on! It only lacked good information about climbing. I've added that myself as I uploaded it from my GPS.
|Telluride, CO to Moab, UT - 6 Day Back Country Epic Ride
tour started July 2004, submitted 25 February 2007
Six men set out on a journey that would build character in body, mind and spirit. Physical challenges, scenery and surroundings ``to die for'', and a spiritual emphasis made this trip truly ``one of a kind''. There are many photos, detailed route maps, a list of everything we packed, the expenses for the trip and a daily ``blog'' or diary of each day. If your planning on doing this trip, it probably is worth your reading. If you've never done a multi-day trip in the ``back country'', it's a ``must read''. It was a trip none of us will ever forget - in the best sort of way! Enjoy!

|Bicycling Utah's summits and passes
, submitted 18 December 2006
Utah is better known for its colorful canyon geography than its lofty summits. But it order to get to the summits, you have to traverse the canyons first. A cycling climb in Utah often involves a combination of arid canyons, mountains and forested plateaus. These pages derive from day rides or short tours taken over many years. They contain elevation profiles, pictures, route descriptions, maps and history for numerous summits. Some of these summits are part of popular touring routes, such as Ut12 connecting Capitol Reef and Bryce National Parks, or the Kokopelli's Trail near Moab. Many others see cyclists very seldom - includes paved and MTB summits - new summits added regularly.
|Spinning Southward - Alaska to Argentina for Brain Tumor Research
tour started July 2005, submitted 16 November 2006
America: USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, ElSalvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, CostaRica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina
In 2002, my brother Mike and I began to talk about an epic, tip to tail, bicycle trip spanning the length of the Americas. At the time, however, our geographic separation and respective professional endeavors would force us to shelve our dream ride and hope for more accommodating circumstances. Two years later, that opportunity presented itself in the fall of 2004 when our lives converged in the mountains of Colorado. Over the course of our stay in Colorado, my brother and I began laying the groundwork for a bicycle trip that would take us from the far northern shores of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southern most city in the world. On July 26, 2005, having cleared all financial and logistical hurdles, we will start pedaling on the long road south.
The motivation for our trip is a reflection of our life-long ambitions - to explore new places, to make meaningful connections with other people and cultures, and to test the boundaries of our physical endurance and mental resolve. These ambitions are inspired by the enduring spirit of our late mother, Jean, herself an accomplished world traveler who always supported and encouraged our explorations of the world. We dedicate this trip to her memory.
In 1996, our mother Jean was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor that took her life in the winter of the same year. To honor our mother's lasting legacy and help those confronting the same illness that eventually took her life, Spinning Southward has partnered with Racing Ahead®, a program created by the National Brain Tumor Foundation that celebrates the passion of cyclists, runners and other athletes. NBTF is a non-profit organization dedicated to innovative brain tumor research and patient care. We are committed to raising both financial support and awareness for the NBTF through our nine-month, 15,000-mile ride across 13 countries. We hope that our ride will inspire you to join us in support of this worthy cause through a contribution to Jean's Journey.
|Cycling the Northern California Coast
tour started August 2001, submitted 2 November 2006
The gap was bothering me. I had done San Francisco to San Diego and Astoria to Eureka. The ride from Eureka to San Francisco would take about a week. Which, coincidentally, was about all the vacation time I had after starting a new job. So I flew to San Francisco, took the bus to Eureka, and filled in the gap, on my first solo tour.

|Subnixus: A Bicycle Tour of America
tour started August 2006, submitted 18 August 2006
Why would I bike around America? Why not? Or better yet, because I can. After first reading about cross-country bicycle tours on Crazyguyonabike.com I was hooked!
There it was, a great adventure that almost anyone could do, and I had all the free time in the world. Before reading about bike touring, I had dreams of hiking the 2500+ mile Appalachian Trail. But 75 mile days on a bike and real food quickly trumped 15 mile days on foot and oatmeal.
So I sold all of my stuff, opted to not renew my apartment lease, and bought a bike. It took me three months and almost $2,000 to aquire the knowledge and equipment to pull off this trip, but now I am ready to start it.
A lot of people ask me why I would want to do something like this. They either assume that I am either crazy, or poor. And while I may be a little of both, I just think it sounds like a good time. Cars, planes, and big cities are three things I try to avoid when I travel. So a nice slow bike ride through the Rocky Mountains sounds like a dream.
While most people will spend $20,000 on a new car, or $5,000 on a one week vacation, I spent $2,000 on a three month vacation with no bills to worry about. Everything I need, will be carried with me on my bike.
So, while it may seem a little crazy at first, I guess the main reason I would do something like this would be the journey itself. As one old Chinese guy once said, `The journey is the reward.'
|Cycling California--The Do-It-Yourself Way
tour started April 2006, submitted 1 July 2006
Ten Days Of Cycling Through The Best Of California: Starting off with an awesome 150-kilometer ride high on the cliffs of America's wildest seacoast--past beaches filled with monstrous elephant seals--I pedaled on around surrealistic 17-Mile Drive and on through the Cannery Row of Steinbeck's novel into the famous resort of Monterey. Next, I soared across vast San Francisco Bay on the Golden Gate Bridge, and on across bike-friendly Marin Country to Point Reyes National Seashore for two nights in a traditional cyclists' hostel. Then came more exciting bike travel, through towering redwood forests beside the Russian River and across the Napa Valley Wine Country to the university town of Davis, famed for its many bicycle paths. Finally, I cycled part way around beautiful Lake Tahoe and ended the trip at the Nevada State Line. My website gives full day-by-day info on how I made the tour;and how to make the same trip yourself, including overnighting at economy lodgings, and where to get maps, when to go, and other helpful literature.

|A North American Bicycle Journey
tour started May 2004, submitted 19 March 2006
When I quit my job, bought a bicycle and rode out of San Francisco, most of my friends thought I'd be back within 3 weeks. With no map, no compass, my sense of direction was flawless. Hence the route from San Francisco to the Yucatan in Mexico via the Alaskan arctic circle.
