Cycling Trips

Since retiring, my husband Rich and I have taken up touring by bicycle.  We love spending week after week on our bikes, traveling the countryside at 12 miles per hour and taking in the local scenery and flavor.   I enjoy blogging along the way, attempting to capture a bit of the feeling of what it’s like to tour by bike, as well as the unique experiences of each trip.

We were also featured in the Outdoors section of the Duluth News Tribune and other newspapers in the country, in a story by local columnist Sam Cook: “Retirees Rich and Molly Hoeg are exploring America — and soon beyond — on self-planned bicycle tours”

    • Sadly, no. With COVID, our food and lodging choices were limited so we refrained from touring. That fall my husband, Rich, had unexpected open heart surgery followed by a year of heart procedures and surgeries. Our touring options remain unknown, but our goal is to get back out there one day!

      • Thank you for the reply. So sorry to hear about Rich. We are sending ongoing healing thoughts his way! I have enjoyed reading the blog posts of your various trips. Thank you for the inspiration!
