I posted this on the "Rides and Clubs" board, but since no-one ever looks at that goes...

I am looking for a 5-7 day long tour/ride/event/camp next summer.

The Tour of Virginia is close to home (about a 6 hour drive) so it's high on my list. Anyone done it?? Any input?? I'm also looking at the Ride the Rockies, Biketour of Colorado, Tour the Peaks, and Tour of Wyoming. All of those include many $100's for airline tickets. I would like to do an event away from my Cincinnati, Ohio home - preferably a trip with mountains. I want a group - sagged, food, etc...I'm not into carrying panniers, etc...

During the summer of 2001, I spent a week at the Carpenter/Phinney bikecamp. I had a blast - but I don't want to do it again so soon. My wife gave me the OK to take a week away from home next summer, so I'm looking for ideas. I posted a similiar thread below a month or so ago, but I'm trying to expand my horizons to include camps or some other 'event' ride.

I would really appreciate any input. Thanks. Paul
