Nova, Tara and I took a trip to Santa Fe I believe for whitewater rafting and sight seeing.
We just returned from a trip out West to ride bikes. We rode trails in Hermosa Beach & Monterey, California, Boulder City Nevada & Central Utah.
Santa Monica Beach and South Bay Bike Path – California
Monterey Bay Coastal Trail – California
Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail – Nevada
Candy Mountain Express Bike Trail – Utah
In addition to the cities we rode in or near we also spent nights in Las Vegas, NM, Flagstaff, AZ and Frisco, CO. While near Las Vegas we spent an evening on the strip.

October 2012 we took off to the North East to ride in a few states we’d not yet ridden in. We rode these trails and cities in the following order…
D & L Trail – Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail in Pennyslvania
Niagara Falls New York.
Catskills Scenic Trail – New York
Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail – New Jersey
Junction and Breakwater Rail Trail – Delaware
Virginia Beach – Virginia
A few notes on the trip…
We were gone 14 days. We drove somewhere around 4000 miles. Gas prices ranged from $3.28 to $4.11. We had no definite plans when we left and just routed ourselves as we went depending on time and weather. We need to get our passports. I wish we would have rode in Maryland while we were there. Out of all the big cities we’ve driven in the traffic in the Washington DC area is the worst. We rode our first tow path. We’ve now been to all the great lakes. There are a lot of pizza places in the N/E. We ate a lot of good local food but I never had pizza. Nova did once. We didn’t have a bad meal or a bad hotel room the entire trip. The farms in OH, PA and NY make for a a beautiful scene especially this time of year. The row houses in the N?E are neat but I can’t imagine living so close to your neighbors. We had a wonderful time as we always do.
