Going Slowly - www.goingslowly.com – Tara + Tyler’s page about their adventure. My favourite tour blog. Tyler is a coder so has made an awesome website that I got a lot of inspiration from. They have a gear list which helped me a lot with my choices and also a unique “Behind the scenes” section where they have data from every day of touring. As well as the more obvious distance and elevation gain they also tracked all their spending. Want to know how much they spent on average for a day in Vietnam? No problem. Price of a hotel in Greece? There too. Amazing site.
Crazy Guy on a Bike – www.crazyguyonabike.com – The most popular website for cycle tourists. Choose from over 5,000 journals and articles about trips all over the world and the gear they used. Got a question? It can probably be answered here.
TravellingTwo – www.travellingtwo.com – Page of Friedel and Andrew who record a podcast about bike touring and have a website full of articles and information for cycle tourists. Also authors of The Bike Touring Survival Guide, a very reasonably priced ebook. €5 gets you both the pdf and mobi copy. A must read.
Tired of IT – www.tiredofit.ca – An interesting page of a guy who originally had a similar route planned to me. He’s a good few thousand km ahead of me in to the ride though!
Freewheelin – www.freewheelin.info – We met Seth while we were in eastern WA. He’s on a wonderful journey too.
Adventure Cycling Assocation – www.adventurecycling.org – Want suggestions for good routes in the US with either maps to buy or GPS routes to download? A forum of cyclists that can suggest alternatives? This is the place to go. Helped me a lot when working out where to go.
Thorn Cycles – www.thorncycles.co.uk – The bicycle shop I got my Thorn Raven from. Experts when it comes to Rohloffs and the premier shop in the UK when it comes to touring.
