NE India exploration

Created: Jan 20, 2021

Looking for potential companions for a future trip to the Indian panhandle. Especially interested in exploring the rugged Tibetan terrain of Arunchal Pradesh, but would also like to see other provinces in this often-overlooked region. Considering starting in Darjeeling with a trek to the third highest mountain in the world. No date set, just seeing if other people are interested. This would be a rugged trip with some big climbs and rough roads, but an unparalleled cultural exchange. Also interested in Manali-Leh area and surrounding roads.

Cross Country

San Francisco to Toronto (or Detroit)

Created: Apr 7, 2021

I am an experienced long-distance road cyclist, and I am going to start my retirement with a cross-country trip eastbound on the Western Express at the start of June. I intend to ride 100+ miles per day — on the road at first light — and would like to be pool-side mid-afternoon. I travel light, sleep in hotels, and eat well. I enjoy cycling by myself, but meals are better with company.

Northern tier - eastbound - modified

Created: Mar 29, 2021

My wife and I will celebrate our 60th birthdays, my recent retirement, and our 35th wedding anniversary by biking from Seattle, Washington, back home to our farm in Maine on the Northern Tier/Northern Lakes route. We will leave Seattle on May 25. We plan to camp and stay at Warmshowers with an occasional hotel. We are in no rush so plan to average about 300 miles a week -- leaving time to explore the countryside, swim in a river, or take in local sites. Happy to have people join us. If you are interested, let's talk over details.

Hi there, I'm a 53-year-old male and have being riding the Southern Tier (generally) eastbound in legs. Did Santa Barbara to Tucson and then did Tucson to Austin.

TransAmerica Trail: Oregon to Colorado

Created: Mar 15, 2021

Howdy! My name's Andrew and I'm an 18-year-old high school senior wanting to try my hand at bike touring before heading off to college. I love the American West and I want to see more of it, so I am planning on taking Amtrak to Eugene, Oregon, and heading east on the TransAmerica Trail in early to mid-June. You could continue on the trail until the East Coast, but my college is in Colorado so I will be stopping there. I am somewhat new to biking, but I am an avid runner and have completed ultramarathons and an Ironman so I can likely go ~70+ miles a day. However, I am flexible on time/pace and could also go slower to smell the roses if you would like. I am looking for companion(s) for added safety in numbers, so fellow newbies are welcome.

Partial Southern Tier Eastbound Mid-April

Created: Jan 4, 2021

I am a 70-year-old married male who is an experienced cyclist that has done several cross-country tours. I'm at the planning stage of a tour starting in mid-April that would run from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to St. Augustine, Florida, mostly along the Southern Tier. I say at the planning stages because the trip is pending on me getting the Covid vaccine and the national Covid restrictions easing somewhat in the spring. I did this route in a westward direction in 2014: https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=1mr&doc_id=14026&v=12Y. I would like to average about 70 miles a day using a bikepacking kit, mostly camping out. I don't cook meals, but tend to pick up food, and eat at Subways and such along the way. It would be fun to share all or part of the route.

Ireland in 2022

If international travel is safe and unrestricted, I plan to bike with one other person (over 35) in Ireland and Northern Ireland in June and July of 2022. 40-50 miles a day for four weeks.

Ireland's extensive network of tranquil rural roads, friendly people, lively trad music in the pubs and spectacular scenery make for some of the most enjoyable cycling in Europe. We'll take side trips to the Aran Islands and another offshore island or two, climb challenging Glengesh Pass and Moll's Gap and visit ancient ring forts and regions where Irish is the first language.

Great Divide Paved Route (& Western Express)

Created: Mar 30, 2021

I posted this back in February, and it’s evolved a bit. I’m still looking for riders interested in riding north on the paved Great Divide Road Bike Route BUT prior to starting I will be riding from South Lake Tahoe along the Western Express through Nevada, Utah & Colorado to Poncha Springs. Once at Poncha Springs, I’ll ride north to Montana (probably Glacier National Park) along the paved route described by David Plaskett in his book Great Divide Road Bike Route. I will start the first leg (Western Express) in early May (5/3 - 6) hopefully arriving at Poncha Springs in two weeks (5/15 - 20) and then head north on the paved Great Divide Road Bike Route to Montana (probably Glacier), finishing up late June. I am a 66-year-old experienced rider riding 40–70 miles a day, camping perhaps or Warmshowers and motels along the way. Ride with me for any or all of it — I love meeting new people and making meaningful friendships. I'm relatively flexible on timing and route (I have a Surly Disc Trucker) so reach out if this sounds of interest.

Looking for Local Riding and Touring Partner(s)

I'm a 56-year-old man, experienced with local tours. I'm retired now and would like to find a like-minded man or men that like to tour local on short trips, while preparing for long-distance touring. An ideal riding partner would be a retired guy with flexible time. I like camping or motels, and will use either when touring. I live in Skagit County, Washington, and would consider developing a riding friendship with anyone within a day's drive. I enjoy both paved and gravel touring. I'm capable of limited singletrack if I need to use it to connect to gravel roads, but I am not a proficient trail mountain biker, so I usually avoid it when I can. I like gravel and standard paved road touring, and love to use rails-to-trails whenever possible.

I am a 46-year-old man planning on doing a long-distance tour in South America. I would probably start on the Atlantic Coast of Colombia, then head south through Peru, Ecuador, Chile and Argentina, but I am flexible with the exact route. Also, if you would like to do something different, like a cross-continental tour of Asia, say, then I am open to persuasion. I am thinking we would do around 60 miles a day and we would mostly camp out, but we can also in hotels, especially in more built-up areas. I have extensive touring experience: in the summer of 2020, my friend and I did the Northern Tier route across the U.S. I don't mind the heat, but I hate the cold.
