thanks

thanks for replying to the thread. let's keep the ball (wheels?) rolling....

oh yeah, by the way, my ride is a 2004 Allez Pro, 54cm, with K-Elites and DA/10 everything except for pedals- i went Ultegra for those. i also added an Alias saddle, which i'm pretty happy with.

I live in Calgary Alberta Canada where there are 100?s of km of bike paths within city limits. I commute 60 km one round trip each day to my office and am on the road for only 4 km of the ride. The Kananaskis and Banff offers the most scenic road and mountain single track around and it is only 45 minutes away.

Phil, got any advice for me.

Phil,
My parents live in Holiday Island ARK. About 5 miles north of Eureka Springs. I've been tempted to bring the bike. I've previously asked for advice for biking to Pea Ridge Battle Field and mostly I heard "leave the bike home, it's not the place to ride". If you know the Holiday Island area, can you give me a safe, interesting route.

Thanks
Scot

Scot,

Sorry I don't know of any routes in that area, I just started the road thing about 6 months ago. There's a pretty nice mtn bike trail at Lake Leatherwood that is near Eureka. I'm pretty sure there should be some nice routes in the area though. Try posting over at www.bikearkansas.com and you might find some suggestions from more locals. I'm living in Fort Smith, went to school at UofA in Fayetteville. Do you get down to visit your folks often?

A couple of times a year

We were last there between Xmas and New Years. We've got in the habit of driving down from Minnesota so bringing the bike would be pretty easy. We flew a couple of times. Between the plane changes and the drive to my parents house from the airport we spent 12 hours travel time even flying, so we've just decided to drive it.
