"It is routine to ride in tunnels in lots of countries. Japan and Turkey particularly come to mind. Over 10 tunnels in a day in Japan is not unusual. The longest I've done in Japan is 4.5km but there are longer ones. There are lots in Turkey

Another guy on a bike. I have been very fortunate to have had viable cycling opportunities over quite a long period. I rode to primary school from a farm outside of town and cycled a lot during high school. I went to SU in the early '70s and had a bike there. By the mid 70s I had discovered touring and spent a few years around Australia plus did a 6 month trip overseas. In the 80's I cycled a lot. But in the 90's I was looking after teenagers and the mortgage so did not do much. From 2000 I have been back into it and loving it. Always looking for touring companions for 14-18 day trips.
Unfortunately we don't get to do a lot of riding together these days, wot wiv kids'n'all, though occasionally we have managed a tour interstate (Tas, NZ -- not quite interstate, but you know...) or closer to home. Quite a few BikeNorth rides go right past our house so we sort of feel included!
Hey, are you coming to the bike breakfast on Monday to celebrate the LCT SUP opening? We'll be there.
