David took up bicycle touring in earnest in 2017, after a pilot ride from Boston to DC in 2013. Tours of successively increasing length in 2017 through 2019 used lodging in motels, B&Bs, and homestays. Meals were in diners, restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, rural taverns, and friend and family homes. Routing was mostly on the human curated, elegantly mapped, and GPS-tracked cycling routes of the Adventure Cycling Association, of which David is now a life member. To get to places not routed to by ACA, routing from RideWithGps.com was used, with mixed results ranging from delightful to unexpectedly adventurous.
