    Hi all, I'm headed there Feb. 20th. This will be my 4th time there. 2 of us do repair work on steam safety relief valves in the civilian power plants located in Piti. We were dive certified the first time there and have logged about 20 more dives during the other trips. Does anyone know of some cool things to see while there. We have done the submarine ride as well as visited all the battlefields. Also did The main drag shopping/mall trips. Before ya ask we have not visited the parlors of comfort. Yes ,I have heard of the hundred mile rule but believe my doctors warning and my wifes threats. We have driven the coastline and took the crosscut to Daves Pirate Cove. They have really cold RedStripe. Are there any bike rentals on Guam? We hope to have a few days standby to do some relaxing.

    Been so long I'm sure things have changed by now, but in my time GUAM stood for Give Up And Masturbate.

    I was just looking at riding in Guam myself.

    I found a link to some riders on a gixxer bike forum, they are based there and have been there for a while.
    I only just fired off a post on their forum asking for info about what the biking is like over there and what sort of road and off road riding is available.
    I also asked for info about bike hire shops, road or trail bikes.
    I'll get back to you when they post up an answer.

    I confess I know nowt about Guam...apart from the fact that it's full of USA military people, and lots of Jap tourists.:lol3
    Just struck me as a short break holiday destination that most Aussies have never been too, hence my interest.

    Cheers: Jaq.

    If you can get on base at Andersen the road to Tarague (Ta ra gee) Beach is a sportbikers's dream.

    I was stationed there on a Navy ammo ship from 91 to 92. If you've done most of the Guam stuff - and I know the list is a short one - take a short plane ride north to Saipan. We vactioned there for a few days and there are a few more dive spots there.

    You might try the contacts page at this site for more info. http://www.guamhawgs.org/index.htm

    When I was there I did a lot of bicycle riding. I credit the excellent riders there with getting me involved in road racing. You might find it fun to pedal with these folks if you are so inclined. http://guamcycling.com
