I'll purchase one with a reasonable climate and some decent climbs. Then I'll have constructed a lovely road that will wind about and take advantage of the magnificent scenery. I also make the most of all the forested areas and do a bit of MTBing down the ancient volcanic slopes.

Never again to worry about neighbors and drunk drivers and cabbies with poor eyesight and all the other louts that stand between me and sheer cycling bliss. Ah me, just my loves (bikes and wife) and I and all the coconuts we can bear to eat. Spend my days in trunks down at the beach, snorkeling, fishing and romancing the fair maiden wife. My eves and morns on the road and trail. And what nights!

Bullocks to all this garbage! Online service at my mountain top retreat and a private helicopter will keep me stocked to the gills and well in touch with the mad world! On my terms! No more eulogy, "Here lies A, he skitched a cab that day."

BTW, thanks to KingMambo for this one, "What a bunch of old women gabbing on and on about nothing."

True. Sad and true. Remember KM, though you are wise, Elvis is the true King.

You should definitely consider New Zealand.

Low population, well made road, mountains and more mountains. Open trails, excellent weather.

Pristine water, best trout fishing, beaches for ever.

Ony medium surf, but, eh! Can't have it all.

My wife was born in Poland, but emigrated as a child with her family, through Jamaica, France, England and New Zealand. After visiting the in-laws, I really wonder why she moved to Montreal. Even I cannot explain it, or cannot be the explanation.

New-Zealand is cycling heaven.
