I'm all excited because I've booked a week's cycling in the Pyrenees in mid May after a year off the bike. We're going to stay in Ariège, in between Col de la Core and Col d'Agnes. Hoping to get some serious cols in....

Where are other people headed? Anyone got any favourite rides I should tink about.

Pyrenees for the etape in July, then maybe I'll hang round in Orthez to see the Tour.

If anyone fancies the Alps, I can recommend a great chalet at the foot of the Joux Plane.

I'll be doing the Death Ride in July here in California. My plan is to make all five passes. I'll see if I can do it.

Nothing epic until September. I will then be doing the Best Buddies Ride from Carmel down to Hearst Castle (which was stage 4 of Tour of California) that runs down Hiway 1 along the Pacific coast. Quite spectacular if I don't go off the road.

I'm going up Mt. Washington in NH. I'm going to circle Nova Scotia (Cabot Trail) if I'm lucky enough to escape for a week. I'm going to crank the Kank. I'm going from Boston to Provincetown for a 120-mile jaunt. And I'll be racing little circles every weekend somewhere until I get faster.

Doc, I'd take the Boston - P-Town ferry if I were you Wink

I just hope to be teaching Tom to ride one of those cool balance bikes

Doing the Ventoux sportif in May, followed by the Ballon d Alsace sportif in early June.

Then the Pyrenees for the tour and some riding of my own, and then a couple of sportifs in Italy including the tour of Lomabardy sportif in Oct.

In between this a bit of local racing, to keep the legs turning over.

BB, that is a spectacular ride. Absolutely beautiful. Hopefully the tour buses won't be running at that time of the year. Their is not much should for the first 30 miles. I rode it during one summer and buses were running back and forth from Carmel to Big Sur. Once your past Big Sur, its much more peaceful

Thanks Crash.

I might have to do some tricky negotiating with Mrs Bartali ... but it looks good!

You can count on my money for that bb. Let me know. Hey, why do they get all serious when I joke about NASCAR? Jeesh.

The ferry? I'll do laps on the sun deck?

What is a balance bike? Would it be good for my 4-year old?

they are bikes with no pedals which the kid pushes along with their feet - meant to let them go straight to a real bike without need for stabilisers. might be ok for a 4 yr old - i'd have thought 3+ (although i'm only only babies at moment so not an expert)

balance bikes seem to be 2 - 5 (there's also a rather cool balance scooter with optional sheepskin seat cover Very Happy)

hw sounds fantastic - and far too much like hard work! we'll be shrimping in the rock pools of brittany with the occasional very leisurely promenade a velo Wink
