I spoke with a number of WarmShowers hosts this past summer and had them all lined up for a tour for a buddy of mine and I to up to the 1,000 Islands area of upstate New York State. However never got to complete the tour due to health problems cropping up for my buddy and not feeling "seasoned" enough to do it alone. The people I spoke to were very courteous & understanding...also cyclists themselves.

I think there is much potential for touring through the use of WarmShowers and a wonderful community to join and look forward to hosting cyclists myself at some point.

The Ride of her Life

"Inside the long-distance cycling craze: The year Jackie Loza lost her job, she bought a bicycle and went on a very long ride, her first ever: 1,804 miles, to be exact. She took Amtrak to Washington, then pedaled south down the west coastline from Ballard to the U.S.–Mexico border.

All told, it took her a month and a half."

What a story!
