I can't wait until my next big tour!
My first bike tour of more than two days was this ride across the Washington section of the ACA Northern Tier a couple weeks ago.  This involved 496 miles of unsupported riding and camping, as well as a few Warm Showers and other hosted accommodations.  I hadn't camped before and was a bit paranoid about it, but this trip showed me how easy and awesome it is!

The mountains (including five passes) really weren't that hard, but my bike's gearing was much lower than stock thanks to past experience.

I didn't know the whole "buses are the wave of the future" thought originated at GM and was promoted heavily across the country by them. Even beyond the whole National City Lines thing, that's pretty self-serving.

Shimano apparently had a splined BB spindle interface back in the late '70s and early '80s, but it was relegated to low-end bikes.

Glad to see cyclists coming out of the woodwork as Winter's hold on the area weakens. I might've even found a cycling partner!

Hydroelectric dams are pretty difficult to get right in Cities: Skylines due to the how the hydrology system works, but I managed to repurpose one of the built-in canal types as a working spillway. I'm getting 2400 MW out of this guy!

I didn't think he'd ever do it.

No real complaints about this ride. I did learn that drinking Nuun all day does contribute to eventual dehydration.
