    I'm starting to discover some interesting bike tours around the country but have not found any definitive list of them. So I'm wondering since we have members here from all over the world what's your favorite bike tour in your area? Or if you've found a good list, please clue me in on that.

    only thing close to those in my area are OPEN races, guys compete but the rest of the field has the ending as an objective, they can be a bit dangerous since not everyone handles well in a fast cycling peloton, but ok ultimately it is a race, i wish we had recreational too. From what i read in magazines, the big bike tours organised in Europe do have racing too but informally, many cyclists race to the finish there also. Cycling magazines, at least in France and in Spain, give detailed information on the routes, admission fees and dates, remember also that Jan Ullrich entered a bike tour in Austria last year,

    Here's a 7-day, 360-mile Habitat for Humanity fundraising/awareness tour (you can ride anywhere from 1-7 days, it's what got me back into cycling):
