I've been fortunate enough to have taken a considerable number of Backroads trips. Friends will therefore not infrequently ask me how to choose among the selection of trips Backroads offers. My first response is to choose one at random. Every Backroads trip is excellent! But that answer usually isn't wholly satisfying to folks. So let me present some other criteria I've used to differentiate among trip options.
About: Ed Keating
When Ed Keating started taking Backroads trips, it was common for guests to send postcards. He continues to buy, write and send postcards to friends and co-workers, though he is now often the only guest doing so. Sometimes he cajoles other Backroads' guests into buying postcards, pointing out stores with especially good postcard prices. Ed appreciates the fact that Backroads leaders will accommodate and support a single rider who chooses to ride a day's long option. He enjoys having Diet Dr. Pepper (in the United States) or Coke Light (in Europe) in the support van. A helmet zealot, Ed applauds the fact that all Backroads guests must always wear one.
