We recently completed riding Seattle to Santa Rosa, CA on a tandem and BOB by way of the coast. The one thing I really wished I had was a list of shops that support the touring cyclist. Fortunately we found the Bike Garage in Astoria that had a tire we desperately needed (and wore out by the time we made it home). The La Vogue shop in Hoquiam was an adventure into the strange. Maybe I've missed something somewhere else here in ACA land. A list of the shops that have touring tires, other touring related gear, internet access (a plus) would be useful info. Or maybe not. Bike Newport (Newport, OR) kind of fit this profile but was lacking products I really prefer to use (e.g. Boeshield, Clif Shotbloks). I'm certainly thinking of starting such a list for the shops in my area.
My second wish would be for ACA maps with shower symbols - that is probably another discussion.
