80 mile 2 day Solo trip to Kal-Haven Rail Trail out to Lake Michigan and back. The Kal-Haven Trail traverses wooded areas, farmland and small towns and is primarily used by bicyclists in the summer. The trail is fine gravel surfaced, and some parts are blacktopped.
Roberta Paul, an adventurous, self-described “suburban mom” takes her family of six and two dogs on a bicycle overnight to Burke Lake Campground, seven miles away, for this Memorial Day adventure. Calling it a great success, they look forward to more bike overnights!

Farms, Fields and Ferraris Three August days and two nights by bicycle on the rural east end of Long Island, New York.
Every year we take turns planning our great summer bike touring adventure. This year it was Ken's turn and he hatched a plan to ride on the east end of Long Island, New York for three days. During planning, Ken was surprised to find that most of the east end of Long Island is really quite rural, with farms, fields and yes, Ferraris.
The forecasters have predicted thunderstorms this afternoon, but as I mount my loaded bike I only see blue skies and white puffy clouds. I left for this overnight tour from the “south side” of Pittsburgh, a diverse area that attracts all kinds. My plan is to circumnavigate the south hills of Pittsburgh utilizing a variety of rail-trails and only a minimal amount of trafficked pavement (about 10% of the 90 mile route).
