Hello and welcome to a guest blog post.  This post has come from Paul Franklin who got in touch to share his inspirational story of battling through health challenges to live his dreams of bicycle touring.  Lets get started...   “Its just a constant battle; me against my body; my passions and my dreams and what I want to do with my life, against what I’m physically able to do”. Austin Carlile.     My name is Paul Franklin, and close to forty six years ago, I fractured my neck at C3.  It was November 30th 1971 and I had just turned a teenager with so much ahead of me.  I then endured close to two years of wearing a collar, physiotherapy throughout my school years, and little did I know there was so much more to come.  Fast forward to 2000, I was having severe nerve pains and numbness...

Hello and welcome to a Guest Post from Botond Bócsi from Transylvania, Romania.  Botond has recently setup a new site to help with planning bicycle routes for cycling.  https://bikeroll.net My name is Botond Bócsi from Transylvania, Romania. I like to spend my free time in nature hiking, rock climbing, or biking. Transylvania is the perfect place for my mountain bike with a lot of hills and mountains. Many desolate roads go though small villages where you can rarely encounter any tourists, thus, you can enjoy the local culture and nature.      After biking a few thousands of miles (that is not that much at all if you think about it) I realized that the planning of a bicycle route is more important than one would imagine.

Hello and welcome to a guest blog post from Stephanie Lindqvist. Stephanie went on an awesome bike tour to USA & Canada, and has started to write a blog all about it. This post is all about getting out there and exploring the World by bicycle!     ”You did WHAT?” Yes, most members of the bike touring family will get this phrase thrown at us at least 100 times in a lifetime, it’s a fact. What we do - ride our two-wheeled besties across landscapes, countries and continents - is obviously not the first thing normal people would associate with the term ’holiday’. Adding up the number of times I’ve been asked to explain the phenomenon of bike touring, it would have been more efficient to record myself repeatedly saying ”it’s not that far” or ”no you don’t need to be in great shape, I barely moved my butt...

I'm very excited to announce a great new service from Cycling Touring Community.  Local Bicycle Touring Leaders.    What is it all about? We are building a network of cyclists, ready to meet up and help other cyclists visiting their local area as part of a cycle tour, or even a simple bike ride. It is about meeting up, going cycling and showing people your local area. The local leader has the opportunity to help, meet new people, have fun, and become part of a bicycle tour. And the visiting cyclist get their own local guide! It is a simple service to use. People register their details and a location nearby (no home or personal addresses), which in turn creates a pin on a map. People visiting the area who want to meet up, Click a Pin on our interactive map, read the details, and if they would like to get...
