It’s frustrating living in America where it is so much harder to find a place that you could have a nice biking holiday..most cities here are not biker friendly (unless you consider a Harley a bike!) but perhaps with the rising cost of gas this will eventually change.

My husband and I used to love biking although we never took a biking holiday. Alas, with my rheumatoid arthritis now I can no longer enjoy the sport but I love seeing and hearing of other’s adventures.
I wish we had places like these in my country. We probably have, need to look. My sister would adore a biking adventure.
