I am a 68 year old retired family physician experienced with long distance, 1-3 month solo touring in the US and Europe. I joined a great group to do the Bamboo Road in 2019. I have also traveled in SE Asia without a bicycle. I am looking forward to joining others on this further exploration of a fascinating part of the planet in a fashion - bicycling- well suited to learning and enjoying whatever we encounter. I also look forward to time with fellow bicyclists and crew as we share experiences. I live in western Oregon, married 41 years to a lovely and loveable non-cyclist who doesn't mind that I do trips like this.

Full tour and section dates listed are for first and last day of cycling. Prices based on double occupancy at majority of the hotels. Solo riders will be paired with another rider of the same gender at no additional charge. Accommodation the night before first cycling day and the night of last cycling day are included in entry fee. We advise booking at least 1 additional night at tour accommodation before the tour, to be able to attend rider briefing and have assistance from tour bike mechanic in setting up your bike.

Full entry fee payment is due 90 days before the tour start date. A registration fee of US$150 must first be paid to hold your place on the tour and is in addition to the entry fee listed above. Registration fee is non-refundable, but may be transferred once, to another tour of your choosing, 90 days or more before the start date of the original tour you have registered for. We recommend registering 4 - 6 months before the tour start date to take full advantage of our pre-tour support and information bulletins, but late registrations are possible when spaces are still available.

Full tour entry fees will receive an early payment discount of US$400 if full payment is received 6 months before the start of the tour. Those coming for multiple sections get 10% off for 2 or more sections on the same tour (multiple section discount does not apply to full tour price). TDA alumni get special alumni discounts.
