On a more serious note, a reminder that the National Bike Summit is happening soon: March 3-5 in Washington, DC. The Adventure Cycling Association states "Carolyn Szczepanski, director of communications for the League of American Bicyclists, informed us that the League is busy preparing for the upcoming National Bike Summit. "This year's theme is 'United Spokes: Moving Beyond Gridlock,' with a focus on funding, safety, and equity for bicyclists and active transportation," Carolyn said."

Looking for an easily accessible bucolic escape? #Point_Reyes #National_Seashore is just 1.5 hours north of #San_Francisco and a #walkers and #foodies paradise. Join a #kayaking excursion for a different perspective of the stunning area. And now that all trails are accessible again after the government shutdown, it's time to start planning.

Today is a big day in for cyclists around the world. German chancellor Angela Merkel officially opened Eurobike, the biggest bicycle trade show in Europe. This major event is put together by the European Cyclists Federation (ECF), representing 70 members across 40 countries, and connecting cyclists around the globe. Mrs Merkel's attendance is a significant step toward getting world leaders to listen to cycling advocates and influencing public policies in favor of cycling and safety on the road.

If you haven't fallen in love with #Paris yet, there's a good chance you will after exploring the new "Berges des la Seine" (#Seine_ Riverbanks). Following an impressive #revitalization_project, as of June 2013, over a mile and a half of the #UNESCO-protected banks is dedicated to pedestrians. Improvements give the Seine a center stage, including new performance and athletic spaces, better access to the city's main attractions on both sides of the river, and inviting cafes. In addition to outdoor activities for children and adults alike (hopscotch, climbing walls, chessboards, running tracks), one will find more unusual attractions such as floating gardens, graffiti/art walls open to all, or "zzz"—maritime containers turned into "napping room" available for rent. Check out this short video for your next best reason to make a trip to #France.

2014 marks the centenary of #WWI, and lots is happening in the #UK to commemorate.

Please note  that the #Imperial_War_Museum in #London is undergoing a major building redevelopment as they transform their museum to mark the Centenary of the #First_World_War. Work has begun to create our new museum and, to enable them to safely and securely deliver the most disruptive construction works. The IWM will be closed until July 2014.

The war was a turning point in world history, and visitors will be able to discover new stories and new perspectives through the latest historical research, innovative technology and our exceptional collections. In July 2014 we will reopen with ground-breaking new First World War Galleries and a newly configured atrium displaying our iconic large objects. To mark the First World War Centenary we'll also be opening Truth and Memory – the largest exhibition of British First World War art for almost 100 years. The new museums will also featurea dramatic new atrium and terrace displays, new shops and a new park-side café. In autumn 2014 we will also launch our private tours.

Today a guest asked me which area between #Ireland's #Connemara, #Killarney, or #Dingle region would offer the most dramatic scenery. My answer: "what about #Cork, or #Wicklow County?" The reality is, we love Ireland—all of it!

Royal Hot #Chocolate anyone? It's time to schedule a visit to #Hampton_Court_Palace, one of the 5 Historic Royal Palaces in #London. Starting in February of next year, you may visit the 18th century #Chocolate_Kitchen, and have a sip of this luscious beverage, the same way #George_I enjoyed it.
