Routes / Re: Pacific Coast - starting in Bellingham or Seattle?
« on: July 02, 2010, 10:35:19 pm »
I biked the Pacific Coast last year and went from Seattle via bus to Anacortes where we hopped on ferries to the San Juans.  It was nice in the SJ's but I preferred Victoria, BC area.  We went there and then biked down to Port Angeles.  I would've skipped the Islands and done more riding on Victoria Island had I known how beautiful it was!  Have fun.  It's all good.

General Discussion / Cycling in the Catskills
« on: July 02, 2010, 10:28:48 pm »

I'm planning a summer bike trip and am considering the Catskills area.  I live in Vermont where there are endless back, country dirt roads with spectacular views and experiences galore.  I hope to find another place that offers beautiful backroads and pastoral and mountain views.  Do the Catskills offer this?  Any suggestions as I have no idea where to start other than by purchasing a NY Gazetteer.

I don't need to plan my routes - I just pick a region and go where the wind blows - hopefully at my back.  Thanks for your input,  Michelle

Routes / Re: Any advice on cycle touring Quebec?
« on: July 02, 2010, 10:19:55 pm »
I live in northern Vermont on the Canadian border - near the Canton De L'Est - or Eastern Townships area.  It's absolutely beautiful in this part of Quebec.  My husband and I were actually riding in the region in Sutton, QC today for the afternoon.  I have many route suggestions that are spectacular - particularly back, dirt roads with pastoral views and quiet, peaceful roads.  I have only cycled La Route Verte once but I'm not a fan of bike paths.  It was nice but just not the type of cycling I like.  I have friends who cycle the Route often who could offer recommendations - and are Adventure Cyclists as well.  Should you want more information - contact me by email at  Have fun planning your trip!  Michelle

My wife and I will fly to Quebec in August and plan to cycle from there northeast up the St Lawrence to Tadoussac, then northwest to Saguenay, around Lac-St-Jean, then take the train to Montreal and finally cycle back to Quebec.  We will camp most of the time.  Most of this is part of "Le Route Verte" and I have a guide about it and it looks very bicycle friendly.  But the guide book is a little hard to understand, and I don't know anyone that has actually been there.  I'd love to hear from someone that has any experience in this region and my main question is about the section from Tadoussac to Saguenay, it seems that this is incomplete and perhaps even dangerous.  Anyone ever ridden any of this?  Thanks!
