Talking Need some bike trip ideas to Celebrate 50th!

Hi guys & Gals

My bother in Law & I will be 50 in 2008 & we want to celebrate with a bike trip. We both ride cruisers & have been round the Baltics & the Med & various other bike trips together.

One idea is to go to the top of Norway then Sweden, Finland, Russia etc. I would like to match it with 50 something, towns, days etc & we want to raise money for the http://www.nabd.org.uk.

As we both ride road bikes we can't really go off road, so any imput from other bikers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Martyn

It will probably be between June, July & August 2008. & it would be nice to do St Petersburg & Moscow but we are both on Cruisers, 1 Triumph Rocket & 1 BMW cruiser so I don't think we will be doing too many off road trails unless we get lost. lol

Thanks for that, let me know the details of your tours when you are up and running as I have a few friends who would be interested in them.
