The pictures of Jobst Brandt's yearly tours of the Alps made me want to do the same:

Amazing that they cycled on awful roads up and down mountains without triples.

Our anesthesiologist at work took a bike tour of Ireland and said it was absolutely beautiful. I would love to do it some time.

There are a lot of tours in the states you can do, some are kid friendly too.

We'd like to tour Italy. We just had a guy come by the other night, we helped with a few things.. he left from here (Reno), and riding his bike to Tuscan, AZ for a job. He's 3 days out now, promised to call when he gets there. So exciting to get to tour.

Sounds lovely. I think I would like to cycle the Norse countries - Norway, Finland, Sweden. Or even the western U.S. states.

I sure would like to take a nice bike vacation, Ireland or someplace! Kids need to be a little older though.

What a wonderful day! No one in the village doing anything. - Shiki
