Re: Which Canary Island ?

I'm on Fuerteventura at the moment and its not a day to be out, a lot more Windy than normal. But it's a stunning place to ride, good climbs too with awesome views and polite drivers.

Re: Safe parking in Oban

I must confess, I would be happier knowing it was parked somewhere safe and sound. One less thing to think about, when laying awake at 02.00, in a tent 3 Islands away. Lol.

Safe parking in Oban

Hi Folks.
As a family next May we intend to cycle up through The Western Isles, does anyone know of somewhere safe to leave the campervan in Oban for a week, as we intend to camp once we are on the bikes.
Cheers.

Re: Whats the best area in the UK for a weeks cycle camping

I should have said, she's quite happy doing 50km so far , and at the moment nice hilly scenery is some where in the future and she still likes the odd creature comforts eg warm water at the end of the day. I was thinking a nice circular East Anglia route. I'll have a look at sites and put a route to...

Extended Touring in the USA.

Hi folks. I'm planning on fulfilling a life long dream and riding across the US, then heading on down the West coast from Oregon to San Diego. As this is going to take a fair while, how do I go about getting extensions to allow me to spend up to six months over there.

Cheers Andy.
