I biked in the Czech Republic a couple years ago and thought it had some of the best signed & nearly carfree bicycle touring. I tried to go this summer (2018), but there was too much stuff going on. After volunteering at the Botanical Garden, I checked the weather in Prague, sunny for at least a week. I was on the train the next day heading north to Prague with my bike.
I have so many thoughts about what I saw while biking through Oregon and California. Since high school the environment has always been a major concern (religion) to me. I was proudly recycling bottles & cans back in 1972. Back then my Dad told me it was cheaper and easier to just throw them away, as he was throwing a beer bottle into the garbage. 46 years later lots of America’s still have that attitude. The worlds resources are just for them to use once and toss into the garbage.
