Japan Southern Islands tour
For 10 dazed days, road-raced the two islands of Kyushu and Shikoku. The terrain was mountainous but the roads were superb, the cars polite and the hosprings welcoming. Meet inumerable local riders, ladies, shop-owners and children, each more friendly than the last. They have become my Japanese family, and inspiration for a quick return, to the carefree biker's life in Japan. (Joseph Reinhart, Apr, 2003)

Prague To Vienna
Starting in Prague, we rode south toward the border of Germany and Austria and stayed in small towns along the way: Benesov, Sedlec Prcice, Ceske Budejovice, Cesky Krumlov, Trebon, Slavonice and Vranov before crossing the border and cycling into Northern Austria and finding the Danube bike trail into Vienna. The country is made for cycling with very few cars on the country roads. It's well signposted and also has many beautiful villages and attractions in a small area. The terrain is undulating with no major hills to speak of in Bohemia and Moravia regions. (Briand Beausoleil, Jul, 2000)
