Some of my bicycle trip Itineraries

These aren't necessarily the best routes, just the ones I used.  In most cases they were adequate.  Very good in some cases.
 
I have done some other trips not described here, but pictures are in the photos by region. 

Road names in this itinerary list remain on this page since they draw Google searches.  I started this list before Google Maps.  For better depiction, follow links for each trip to the newer Google maps I made.  This list remains as a legacy.
