No pic showing up for me, Chinook.

Really interested in visiting Mendoza and further south, Bariloche.

weird. Here's the link.

I've been reading a few pages per day of this Canadian couple's trip report. Fascinating trip through Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina. If I can ever shake this 9-5 job, I'd love to try something like that. And Latin and SA seem to be pretty inexpensive with a good range of lodging options. Gotta get the kids through college first.

What is striking about that bike lane is how it turns the whole traffic order upside down. Bikes in the center with protected curbs. I'm not sure what part of town that is or how long it goes.

I don't know. It would not be too difficult for an oncoming car to jump one of those berms...

It ain't perfect, but as compared to a little white line on the road delineating us from them, I'd say it's quite nice.

Sometimes I have to ride in the snow with raw bleeding saddle sores, uphills both ways, with a pack on my back, pulling a sleigh of orphaned children and a hot cauldron of chicken soup and without even a trace of a white line...

Eh.

Gosh Huckleberry. Sometimes the roads I ride don't even have roads...

Damn, Zoot. Sometimes the bike I ride isn't even a bike, much less one that has the luxury of a road that's not even a road.

Lucky you.

Yeah, but my bike can ride with no rider (no lie)...I concede this contest of wits as you are younger and have more brain cells...

Not only my bike, but I, am merely a figment of my imagination.

And that's probably only the place that I'm younger and have more brain cells ; )
