Cycling tips #1: Crazyguyonabike – Useful site for folks planning to travel with their bicycle(s)

Hi everyone,

This year, our team decided that we would try to scour and scout around what useful sites, trends and information that might be of interest to you the cyclist. No brand bashing, just stuff that you might find helpful for your cycling/foldable fix!

Here’s the first of our monthlies(Haha if there is such a word): Travelling with bicycles.

We have been selling the Extrawheel Trailer to serious Trekkers on bikes and they have stories to tell.

More and more people contemplating doing holiday trips with their bicycles.  A regular of ours was at the shop and mention this URL that is a nonproft neutral website for everything about travelling on a bicycle. It has contacts, journals and tips for anyone planning to take their bike on a trip. The site has won an aware for adventure.

Neil Gunton did his 114 day ride across USA covering more than 8400km and his journal started it all. Reminds me of the movie Forrest Gump when he decided to just keep running…

Author has posted 5,331 journals and articles, with 712,135 pictures

Bike Friday has a nice Trailer that is made out of a suitcase that you can pull along after you unfold the bike.

Of course we have our own pool of people who have taken their Dahon Vitesse P18s to South America

Speed TRs throughout Asia (12000km and had only one flat tire!) and

Airnimal Chameleons to the Himalaya/Saudi desert.

Audax Australia on a Dahon Tournado.

Touring in hilly Hong Kong Shekou

Aeon keeping up with a Bike Friday in Laos/Cambodia

Is your adventure unfolding?
