Hello HikeBikeCook, HobbesOnTour and John!

thanks all for the super valuable advice to a newbie! HobbesOnTour, I think I have the same philosophy and appreciate the advice! Pressure doesn't sound right.

Thank you to each for sharing these valuable nuggets!

So appreciated :)


Pacific Northwest / Vancouver, BC to Astoria - first long bike tour

Hello! Happy New Year!

I am curious to bike ("credit card touring" as I read somewhere its called!) from Vancouver, BC down to Astoria, OR. Its something like 500 miles.. Maybe in 5-6 days.. I have done some 60-100 mile rides in my life - but 20 years ago! So I dont think it counts!
I am 43 now :) riddled with running injuries.

I got the Training Bible (although its very professional and very intimdating).I have two questions... what would be a good time of year to do this ride? And what type of training plan should I use? (I am not in any type of hurry to do this ride).

Thank you for any advice :)
