Over the years of bicycle touring and hosting bicycle travellers, I’ve met so many people on a bicycle that I began to forget. So for the sake of remembering and for the sake of showing just how many people are out there, I am compiling this list of blogs, sites, pages, and just about anything where people on a bicycle tour keep some kind of record of memories.
While this in a sense may be just a plane simple list, you can use it to read even more other people's experiences and get even more inspiration to set sail on your bicycle. And it is especially good to read, at least some of them, because they can give you ideas and information about the places you will pass. If you have a plan to pass somewhere that is.
The only problem is how to sort them. Perhaps it would be great if they are sorted by the countries that the bicycle traveller visited. But most of the blogs are alive, and people keep adding new posts and visit new countries. I could perhaps list then in accordance to the birth country of the bicycle traveller. No. The best, I think, is if the list is made in accordance to the place at the moment they consider a home (besides the tent). This way if there is a bicycle traveller near you, you can seek for to meet and have a beer (if he/she is ever back from bicycle touring).
So here it goes (brace your self).
