With each passing day, I'm becoming more excited about the upcoming bike trip in September to Glacier National Park, the bike trails leading East from Spokane into the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho and bicycling in Chicago (along the lakeshore, etc.).

If you'd like to ride with me on any of these epic rides, look for more details soon (in my blog), including special discounts that some of the hotels are making available. Also, if you have a contact that can help me book lodging at any of the fine hotels near Grant Park, please let me know.

Thanks go to Amtrak for making possible the first in our series of bike trips to identify the best places to go bicycling in North America. Riding the trains from New Orleans to Memphis and Atlanta to New Orleans were a great way to start and end this trip. I biked in both Tennessee and North Carolina, getting some great photos and collecting a wealth of information for upcoming bicycling stories. For more about the trip, visit my blog or the photo gallery of the trip that I've just added to the site.

For Immediate Release

Beginning in August of 2006 and spanning over the next 36 months, I'm making 45 bike trips to ride and write stories about great places to go bicycling. A story about each bicycle trip will be published here and more stories will be added regularly.

Each story will contain interactive trail maps with photos and links to nearby lodging, attractions, dining & cycling services. The maps will be updated in real time, allowing visitors like you to chart my progress. I'll also be posting entries to my blog daily from the trails.

Among the first stories I'm writing is one about bicycling the Centennial, Coeur d'Alenes & Hiawatha bike trails in Western Washington and Northern Idaho. Look for more information to be posted either here or on my blog as it becomes available.
