I'm currently in Arizona and the cover story in one of the sections in the newspaper "USA today" was entitled "The Bicycle Revolution". It was a two page story on two-wheel touring but also had a top 10 list of best bike-friendly states. No. 1 was the state of Washington and the worst state was West Virginia (so don't go there with a bike is the message). I suppose people may be able to find a link on the web to this article but I thought I would share it with everyone back home - to me it was a suprising find since I thought it was one area where we were miles ahead of the Yanks. However, there are a couple of railtrails over here that are a couple of hundred miles long! Pretty cool, but where ours??? Yeah yeah I knkow we have them but not that long.
