Tired of I.T!
by Dave Conroy, tour started 2009, submitted 30 December 2012

In 2009 after being fed up with my job I sold everything I owned and bought a bicycle setting forth for a round the world journey.

2009 Miles That Changed My Life
by Bridget Bailey, tour started June 2011, submitted 4 January 2012
America: Canada, USA

People deal with the plights of life differently. When something major happens, some become mentally paralyzed and others just go and do. I was getting to that point where I couldn't do anything, so I decided to do something that wouldn't let me hibernate-I biked the Pacific Coast by myself. Vancouver to Squamish to Bowen Island, back down through Vancouver to Washington, through the Islands, over the Olympic Penn., and then down the WA, OR, & CA coast.

2009 miles that changed my life forever

Myrtle the Turtle Trike Tour
by Sylvia Halpern, tour started July 2007, submitted 1 September 2010

My plan is simple: ride as long as it is fun!

In July 2007 I closed the door behind me to start my first trike tour. I had no idea how far I would get and this tour took me from Canada to Guatemala. I had such a good time I continued on spending 9 months cycling New Zealand and Australia. In 2009 I cycled through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand.

East by Northwest - 2008 solo cycle tour across North America
by Alex Grove, tour started March 2008, submitted 24 August 2010
America: Canada, USA

From mid-March until late October of 2008 I cycled some 13,000 kilometres (8100 miles) across North America. I started from Victoria, British Columbia, slowly making my way north by bike and ferry to Anchor Point, Alaska, the most westerly point in North America reachable by continuous road from elsewhere on the continent. From Anchor Point I headed more or less south east, but not in a straight line, taking my time to explore and to visit, letting the wind and my whim dictate my route, eventually arriving at Cape Spear, Newfoundland, the most easterly place in North America.

Montreal - New York City Tour
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2009, submitted 7 August 2010
America: USA, Canada

I have heard so much about the beautiful Hwy 100 which mainly winds down Vermont. Starting at Montreal, which is worth more as a day. I remember, when mountains appeared at the skyline, and a Canadian bicyclist said: you will find hundreds of them, if you ride down to NYC. He was right...! NYC, a place for bicyclists. Car drivers are friendly - never closing a path gap. Police are friendly. If I would get a Dollar for crossing an intersection on red, I would be a millionaire...

The Central park: a huge bike way, which closes in a round 5 miles circle. Some bikers doing city races. Hard to follow. I have been staying for 10 days in NYC, did my daily exercise in crossing the city to the Hudson river bike path. Very recommended bicycle path. Starting at the Statue of Liberty, ending at the Harlem river mouth. Good luck to all the followers!

Daves Travel Pages
by Dave, tour started 2010, submitted 17 April 2010

My name is Dave Briggs, and I am an Adventure Cyclist from England. My current cycling trip, is to cycle the Pan-American route from the very north of Alaska to the south of Argentina. I began my journey in July 2009, and am estimating that I will finish sometime in October 2010.

My route has taken me past sights of natural beauty, over rough tracks, near mayan ruins, and enabled me to meet hundreds of friendly people.

This is not my first trip, however. I have also cycled from England to South Africa, details of which are also at my site, which covers nearly 15 years of travel around the world.

Put the kettle on, make a nice cup of tea, sit down, and enjoy !!

A Bicycle Trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island July 2003
by Susanne and Ole Jacobi, tour started 2003, submitted 25 November 2009
America: Canada

For the last many summers, we have visited the islands of the Eastern Atlantic seabord: Lofoten in Norway, the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland in Scotland, Ireland, Wales which is not an island, but might as well be one, and Gotland in Sweden which is an island, but in the Baltic, not in the Atlantic. The time had now come, we thought, to cross the Atlantic and see what it looks like on the other side. As islands seem to be our preferred locations, we chose Prince Edward Island (PEI in the local vocabulary) in Canada which has the advantage of being fairly small and not too hilly.

Pedaling South from Alaska to Argentina
by Lucie and Torrey, tour started September 2009, submitted 26 August 2009
language: en, fr

We're cycling 25 000 km across the Americas from Alaska to Argentina to raise funds for Cyclo Nord Sud, a non-profit that sends used bicycles to developing countries. As ambassadors for this organization, we will meet with Cyclo Nord Sud's Latin American partners and hopefully create contacts with new ones along the way.

We're a francophone/anglophone couple from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We're each adding original content in our respective languages, so our blog is a 2 for 1. Enjoy!

Nous traversons les Amériques dans un voyage autonome de 25000km en vélo, de l'Alaska à l'Argentine afin de ramasser des fonds pour Cyclo Nord-Sud, une organisation à but non-lucrative qui envoie des vélos usagés dans les pays en voie de développement. En tant qu'ambassadeur, nous visiterons leurs partenaires en Amérique latine et créerons de nouveaux contacts.

Across North America on a Yellow submarine
by Igor Kovse, tour started July 2009, submitted 18 August 2009
America: Canada, USA

The lack of traffic brings wildlife closer to the road. He sees two cranes, some kind of partridge with a crest on its head, a fox and a strange black creature the size of a big cat with long fat tail (a wolverine maybe?). There is also a bird who sings refrain 'We all live in a yellow submarine'. This becomes a hit for the rest of the tour, especially the beginning 'In the toooown, where I was boooorn, lived a maaaaan, who sailed the seeeeeas', as this is all Mr. Iik can remember from the song.

My pedalled globe tour (part 1): Las Americas
by Christian Bomio, tour started May 2007, submitted 24 July 2009

In May 2007 I've started a round-the-world bicycle tour. This is the first part of this journey which began in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska going south through Canada, USA, Mexico and Central America. After one year my wheels were in Colombia to begin riding around South America (Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina) in order to reached Ushuaia at the end of the world in Tierra del Fuego by end of 2009.

In Bolivia following the railway line sometimes is better then the dirt roads.
Summer cycling from Hungary to Morocco and across Canada
by Alfred Maleczki, tour started 2006, submitted 28 March 2009
language: hu

A lonely Hungarian cyclist who has the Summers free and likes to make new advantures on his bike.

Started with his short Croatian tours, but made it always longer, and in 2005 didn't stop before the 2700th kilometer in Greece. In the following year he decided to start the real adventure, to cycle out of Europe.

2007 was the year of cycling across Canada, the headwindy way - of course :) After this 9000km trip now he is in the planning stage of the South-American tour for 2009.

From Oregon to the Yukon
by Benjamin Heumann, tour started 2007, submitted 11 March 2009
America: USA, Canada

Two months of cycling from Portland, OR to Whitehorse, Yukon in four segments. 1) Solo- Portland, OR to Seattle WA via the Pacific Coast. 2) Solo- Victoria, BC to Cortes Islands, BC to Vancouver, BC. 3) with Nick C. and Stacy: Vancouver, BC to Port Hardy, BC via the Sunshine Coast. 4) with Nick P. Prince Rupert, BC to Whitehorse, Yukon via the Cassiar Highway.

The first three segments were very civilized with camping in state/provincial parks and beautiful summer weather (except the occasional rain storm). The final segment was 12 days of intense cycling (100+km per day), rustic camping, many, many bears, but some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever cycled.

Canada C2C 2008 - Biking Canada Coast 2 Coast
by Mary Sanseverino, tour started May 2008, submitted 3 March 2009
America: Canada

In the spring and summer of 2008 my husband Mike and I cycled 9450 km across Canada from Victoria BC to St. John's NL. We were joined for almost all of this trip by our friend and long time cycling companion Mark.

I took a small computer and we were able to keep a blog for the entire trip. Our website is full of stories, detailed maps, pictures, and links. I hope you find it interesting.

All in all, we had a fantastic trip through a country full of stunning landscapes and wonderful, warm, welcoming people. A ride across Canada is truly one of the world's great bicycle adventures. I highly recommended it!

Cycling from Argentina to Alaska
by Kelly and Dave, tour started November 2008, submitted 6 April 2008

Two Poole based intrepid travellers are setting off on a journey of a lifetime to raise funds for a local charity, Julia's House and the international charity, SOS Children's Villages.

Kelly and Dave will be starting in Ushuaia, at the Southern tip of Argentina in South America and will cycle to Alaska, the extreme northwest portion of the North American continent.

They anticipate that they will be on the road for up to 2 years, facing extreme weather conditions and the challenging terrain that the American continent has to offer. They plan to cycle the world's driest desert and the high altitude mountain regions of the Andes.

By doing the trip by bicycle they are hoping it will bring them closer to the environment and learn about the ever changing world that we live in and aim to leave minimal impact upon the environment.

Journals of a few modest bike tours in the Western US and Canada
by Peter Hoffman, tour started January 2007, submitted 4 December 2007
America: USA, Canada

I live in Berkeley, California and my friend John lives in Los Angeles. Since 2003 we've been getting together each year to do a modest 7-12 day bike tour. Our criteria include, if possible, light traffic, beautiful scenery, reasonable odds for good weather, and no more than 80 miles between indoor accommodations (so we don't have to lug camping gear). The journals of other bike tourists have been so helpful in planning these trips I thought I should share ours as well. As of 2007 we've ridden on the Oregon Coast, the Central Oregon High Desert, Wyoming (Yellowstone NP, Teton NP, Wind River Valley), Sunshine Coast of British Columbia and Vancouver Island, and Southwest Utah (Zion, Bryce & Capitol Reef NP).

Bicycle Tour 2k6

America: USA, Canada

We are two cyclist from Chicago who have taken a year off to ride a large part of the U.S. perimeter and some of coastal Canada. We have only a rough plan of where we are headed at any time, and spend nearly every night camping or with people we meet along the way. Our only goal is to see interesting parts of North America and meet the people who live there, so you will notice our journal is less about riding than the places we've been.

Biking around the world
by Andrew & Friedel, tour started September 2006, submitted 12 March 2007

We're Andrew & Friedel Grant - two Canadians who, after living in the UK for 6 years, have set off to travel the world by bicycle. We had no previous bike touring experience when we began, having really only gotten into cycling at the start of 2006, and when we say we ``got into cycling'' that means short commutes to work along flat cycle paths and the odd day trip, that usually ended up at the pub. We're still not quite certain how that translated into the situation where Friedel said ``hey, let's bike around the world'' and Andrew said ``sure, why not''. The first leg of our tour was in Canada, then through Europe to Morocco. We will keep cycling around the world; hopefully next towards eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Banff, Canada to Montana, USA - Back Country with Lodging
by Gene Nacey, tour started September 2005, submitted 25 February 2007
America: Canada, Canada, USA

This trip had riders and non riders alike. This might be the most beautiful experience in Canada that any American can have. Even the cabin in the woods (which outside of no electricity and running water, was phenomenal - see pics from day 3) was impressive. Non riders could hike in and out to this location, or spend 2 nights in Elkford. Only the motel in Elkford was modest - even though it also had high speed internet. The remaining accommodations would all be rated 3 or 4 stars, yet were very modestly priced. While food selections were limited in some locations, the food was outstanding in others. All in all, I would not be afraid to take even the most seasoned traveler on this trip.

There is a button that details each day of our trip. Lots of pictures, my diary of what happened each day, and I've posted both the original itinerary as well as the packing list (which turned out to be just right). The map we used was from the Adventure Cycling Association, and it was right on! It only lacked good information about climbing. I've added that myself as I uploaded it from my GPS.

Banff, Alberta, Canada - The first view as we started the trip
Spinning Southward - Alaska to Argentina for Brain Tumor Research
by Mike Logsdon, tour started July 2005, submitted 16 November 2006

In 2002, my brother Mike and I began to talk about an epic, tip to tail, bicycle trip spanning the length of the Americas. At the time, however, our geographic separation and respective professional endeavors would force us to shelve our dream ride and hope for more accommodating circumstances. Two years later, that opportunity presented itself in the fall of 2004 when our lives converged in the mountains of Colorado. Over the course of our stay in Colorado, my brother and I began laying the groundwork for a bicycle trip that would take us from the far northern shores of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southern most city in the world. On July 26, 2005, having cleared all financial and logistical hurdles, we will start pedaling on the long road south.

The motivation for our trip is a reflection of our life-long ambitions - to explore new places, to make meaningful connections with other people and cultures, and to test the boundaries of our physical endurance and mental resolve. These ambitions are inspired by the enduring spirit of our late mother, Jean, herself an accomplished world traveler who always supported and encouraged our explorations of the world. We dedicate this trip to her memory.

In 1996, our mother Jean was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor that took her life in the winter of the same year. To honor our mother's lasting legacy and help those confronting the same illness that eventually took her life, Spinning Southward has partnered with Racing Ahead®, a program created by the National Brain Tumor Foundation that celebrates the passion of cyclists, runners and other athletes. NBTF is a non-profit organization dedicated to innovative brain tumor research and patient care. We are committed to raising both financial support and awareness for the NBTF through our nine-month, 15,000-mile ride across 13 countries. We hope that our ride will inspire you to join us in support of this worthy cause through a contribution to Jean's Journey.

A North American Bicycle Journey
by Leon Steber, tour started May 2004, submitted 19 March 2006
America: Canada, USA, Mexico

When I quit my job, bought a bicycle and rode out of San Francisco, most of my friends thought I'd be back within 3 weeks. With no map, no compass, my sense of direction was flawless. Hence the route from San Francisco to the Yucatan in Mexico via the Alaskan arctic circle.

A stormy alberta afternoon
Vancouver to Montreal on Bike
by Nick Cowan, tour started May 2001, submitted 8 February 2006
America: Canada

We awoke to cloudless skies and a strong headwind. Breaking camp we hit the road only to learn that Saskatchewan highways don't always have paved shoulders. We assumed the alpha formation whereby Nick takes point and Dave is the rear guard. Appearing inebriated, Dave would sometimes swerve into the road to scare cars into the far lane. Making possibly the smartest decision of his life, Dave stopped to ask road workers if we could have two pairs of disposable earplugs to drown out the wind. These were great for the moral and allowed us to phase out of this world and create sci-fi stories which became entertainment for our breaks.

As we were getting into Maidstone, Dave got a flat back tire. Inspection of said tire revealed multiple punctures: two staples, three pieces of glass and a small rock. These had all managed to work there way through Dave's ``Perfect'' (brand name) tire. Much to Nick's dismay Dave decided to swap front and back tires. This took a few hours since Dave makes bike repairs at a Tectonic pace. As we mounted our Cromoly steeds Nick realized that he too had a flat tire. (Just ask us about road tar, we dare you) Dave's response: You're shitting me, right?
