Bicycle Tours

Over the years I have done a large number of organized bicycle tours of one week or longer. I did at least one a year from 1982 to 2016 with missing only a few years. The current total is 50 different tours. On the tours I have ridden in 39 different states and 4 countries (USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia). Most of the trips have been just one week in duration and most often took place in the Western United States. I have gone with groups as small as three (in Alaska) and as large as 10,000+ (RAGBRAI). For the longer trips I wrote a diary so I could remember the details at the conclusion of the journey. These diaries have been converted into a Web format and are included here as they were originally written with only a few changes to format for the Web.
