When touring by bike, I experience far more of the world than by foot or inside a car. Read my Tours with Maps posts or click on the interactive map. See bike touring resources from Adventure Cycling, East Coast Greenway, Rails-to-Trails, and Warmshowers.

See also my biking Around Hartford CT posts, and learn about local organizations seeking to make cycling easier and safer for all, such as the BiCi Co. community bike shop, Transport Hartford, BikeWalkCT, and Bike West Hartford.
