Bicycle Touring : International Index

2003 / April 26

Countries | other indexes | non-bike links for budget travel

Travel sites on the www - and elsewhere - often describe exotic & wonderful places that would be great to travel by bike - yet they almost never mention bikes, or the things that bikers need to know!

Grace is building this alternative site, which will provide a quick means to access specifically bicycle related touring information.

He has included also some general non-commercial links at the end of this document that are not bike specific but are particularly useful nonetheless.

Contributions to this Index are very welcome, so if you know of a bike story that hasn’t made it to the usual lists, let us know and we’ll list it here.

And please - no tour companies, (the www is full to overflowing with commercial bicycle sites, so they are very easy to find!)

Other sources of International bike touring information are :

Britain's " Rough-Stuff Fellowship "
