CYCLE TOURING SITES

Compilations:

Trento Bike Pages – links to a huge array of tours from all over the world. Well worth a visit.

Crazy Guy On A Bike – equally huge array of tours from all over the world. This site, however, gives cyclists the space to write up their reports on the site itself.

Cycle Tours happening now:

Bicycling around the world – very well laid out site with some great images from tours in India, Nepal and Indonesia, amongst others.

The Big Africa Cycle – Started July 2009, this is Peter Gostelow’s latest tour from England to Cape Town. Well written site, good peripheral links and nice images.

Cycling Gypsies – touring Europe with two dogs, two Surlys and one trailer. Plus additional info/bike related themes. Good site.

Cycling To The Ashes – 25000 km on a bike with a cricket bat. Regular updates from the road.

Down The Road – travelling since 2002, the Travis’ have written two books and developed a big website.

Herve Pura Vida – On the road for the past 5 years, covering parts of Europe, plus Africa and South America. Includes adapting his bike to pedal down the Amazon. Interesting site.

Revolution Cycle – Round the world cycle tour by 3 guys from Ireland. Some really nice video footage.
