Six Rivers Tour

My friend Paul and I decided to take a tour in Northern California as sort of a celebration of our retirement. The original plan was to do a large loop starting in Weaverville, California, riding down Highway 36 to 101. Down and back into the Avenue of the Giants, side trip to Ferndale. Then north […]


October Surprise

We decided that a six day tour through the Central Coast would be a good practice for our future boarder to boarder tours. We hope to do first the Pacific Crest from here to Canada and then the Pacific Coast back. But we need to get our equipment sorted and learn what it takes to […]


Luggage Boxes

I just added these to my Quest, to give me more storage space when I tour. They enclose an are in the front that would be of little or no use, normally. I can put three tires and three tube in them. I might be able to get all that in one, if I pack […]


S240 Ramona Camping Trip April 11-12, 2015

Paul and I hatched a plan about a month ago to do an overnight bicycle camping trip. Paul arrived at my house shortly before 9:00 AM Saturday morning, raring to go. I was excited too. This was a test for equipment and practices. I have new camping equipment pared down to fit inside the velomobile. […]

This is a great place to have a velomobile gathering. Craig and Vicky did a first rate job of organizing, planning the routes and welcoming us to their home. I’ve never seen so many […]


Do you know the way to San Jose (It is what it is.)

The title for this ride is because the original plan was to take the train to San Jose, then ride from there. Later we decided that driving would shorten the trip almost two days.  The challenge was to find a place to park the car, while we toured. I asked on the bicycle touring mailing […]
