Bicycle Touring

In the recently released issue #52 of the Newsletter, there’s an article about travelling in the Outback by bicycle. In it, I promised to provide some web addresses that may be of interest, and here they are:

The UltraMarathon Cycling Association: http://www.ultracycling.com/ 

The Adventure Cycling Association: http://www.adventurecycling.org/ 

A blog about global tourist cycling: http://www.worldbiking.info/wordpress/ 

 The diary of a bicycle trip from London to Melbourne. (18,168 km): http://www.abikejourney.com/ 

Riding around the world (50,000 kms): http://web.archive.org/web/20051125050733/http://www.roundtheworldbybike.com/default.asp 

An amazing collection of stuff about every possible aspect of bicycle touring, which claims to contain more than a million pictures: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/ 

I’d be interested to hear of readers’ experiences of meeting cyclists on long trips, or of doing such trips themselves.

Writing about the things that interest me helps me to discover what I think. One of my loves is the Australian Outback, and I travel out there often, and when possible take friends with me.

    Tony and I drove from Darwin to Townsville via Daly Waters, Borroloola, Normanton & Undara. Somewhere after Borroloola we met 2 cyclists, from Europe, struggling through the dust. We had some ice still left in the fridge, so were able to give them a cold drink and replenish their water bottles. I think we shared some food with them too. Also met a couple doing a cycling challenge when we visited the “tip” of Cape York. Gave them and their bikes a lift back. Apparently the challenge only required getting there, not the getting back! (I didn’t blame them…the dust was murder to drive through, let alone bike)
