Upcoming Summer Tour

Once again this summer I will be doing my 3 day 2 night camping tour around southeast Indiana. This short tour is my practice for the big event in a couple years when I retire. Check back as I update the progress of my planning. Below is my map layout. This tour will  begin June 17th and end the 19th.
I recently purchased a book called, "Bicycle Touring Blueprint" This was purchased through "Bicycle Tour Pro" website. http://bicycletouringpro.com/blog/ This book is chalk full of helpful touring information. So far what I'm reading is what I have already learned from being self-taught. It's good to see that what I have been doing was close to being the right way.  More information about this book will follow...

You may follow my travels on this website called "Crazy Guy on a Bike"

Tour 2014

This past weekend two of my fellow club members and I did a two night three day tour in southwest Ohio. This ride is one of my yearly adventures as I prepare for a cross country in 2017. This ws the first time I have invited others to join me. It was a great experience and learning curve. Below are several pictures that helps explain my travels.

Full Moon Ride

On what is suppose to be the night where the moon will be closests to earth, we planned our first club night ride in several years. I had forgot how much fun is was. Riding at night down a dark country road it changes your perspective on touring. The air temps were cool, no wind to speak of silence of only hearing the whirl of your bike. Of course a few bats flew over and many insects when riding along a farmers field. We are hoping that this ride will the first of many more to come. I do need to buy me a better light thou.
FYI.. I enhanced the moon in the picture a little, but I think you get the message?

The weather looked a little discouraging to begin with, but it held up through most of the afternoon. Attached are several pictures that depict our weekend adventure.
