    Where wouldn’t I like to tour. But, first I’d like to actually tour Canada. I’ve been across in a car several times, however there’s so many things that I missed because I was in a hurry. Touring several months by bike and picking sites to view would be a great way to see those things we glossed over. If my spouse was up for it I’d tour with her, if not then I think I’d really like to do it by myself.

    I’d like a copy! I want to start touring by visiting some of the state parks in California. Eventually I want to see China from the saddle!

    I’d love to tour with my buddy Root. Start out in Texas, head West, hit the coast and go right on up to Alaska. That would be an amazing journey. Also, big up to Andrew and Friedel, nice little giveaway they got going here. Much appreciated. 🙂

    I’d love to do two bike trips: one down the west coast of the USA/Canada, and then one around southern France. Both with my husband Peter!

    Wow, all great tour ideas. Only problem is that we want to go on all of them as well! Our next dream (there are many), is to take 3 months and ride the entire Great Divide mountain bike route from Alberta to the Mexican border. Good luck everyone with the contest!

    After watching photos from a bicycle tour across South America, I can’t stop dreaming about cycling there, especially in Patagonia. But why not go further all the way to Alaska? From there, it’s just too close to Japan to miss it. And being already in Asia, it’d be a pity to skip the other wonderful countries. From the south-east I could also jump to Australia and New Zealand… yes, such a trip would do:D
    And with whom? With someone not afraid of ants to help me scare them away! 🙂

    I’d love to ride the Eurovelo 6, 4,000k from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, with my husband Fred (because he carries the tent and waits for me when I’m slow)

    Oooooh, we want to do this too! It’s on our list for this summer. Well, maybe not ALL the breweries, but many of them.

    I would like to have the time to tour all the provinces of the Netherlands with my wife. We’re doing bits and pieces but have only cycled in 3 provinces so far.

    I’d like to tour Southern Utah and the Grand Canyon area. Perhaps taking a day or two for some mountain biking on the slick rock area around Moab. I would love to tour with my wife of 20 years. She talks about it a lot but has never done it. Thanks.

    Hey there, I’m about to graduate from Tufts University, and to celebrate I’m planning on a European bike tour this summer, from Amsterdam to Barcelona. My girlfriend and I have plane tickets, bicycles, and a blog about our training (, but very little idea about our actual route yet.

    This would probably help us out a lot! So yes, this would be great.
    Thanks, Diego (
