Our first bike touring experience rocked our socks! (And made them very, very wet on a few days….). Bike travel for so many days felt unlike any vacation I’ve ever taken. We’ll be doing this again — a lot. Especially if we can find long, separated trail mileage for that get-away-from-it-all experience. (Hear that, small towns looking for economic development? Invest in trails.)

A Much Shorter Trip
A while back Hubs and I took a much shorter four-day weekend getaway. Here’s the roundup of posts on that — a lot less mileage and rain.
