March 2011 Bike Touring Newsletter
Welcome to the March edition of the TravellingTwo bike touring newsletter – just in time, before the calendar flips to April.
This month’s newsletter is a bit late because we’ve been putting all our energy into our new Bike Touring Survival Guide. Those ‘finishing touches’ can take a while but after weeks of intense work, the book is nearly done.
We plan to release it in the coming weeks, and we owe a huge Thank You! to the generous group of bike tourists who have taken the time in recent weeks to carefully edit all 200+ pages of the book: Stephen Lord, Tyler Kellen & Tara Alan, Stijn de Klerk, Scott Stoll and Trevor & Simone. Your help has been invaluable.
Until you get a chance to flip through the real thing, take a look at the cover we’ve designed, and explore this month’s blog posts. And if you’re missing your dose of bike touring tips and our favourite gear, don’t worry. The normal newsletter service will resume soon
- Bike Touring In Southern Morocco - Paul & Grace tell us about their bike tour through Morocco.
- Packing & Organising Clothes On A Bike Tour – Here’s a trick for keeping your panniers organized.
- Cycling In Holland – A photo essay about a day on our bikes in Holland.
- Our Top 10 List – The 10 tours that are currently on our “must do” list
- Insurance For Bike Touring – An update of one of our most popular articles; getting insurance for a long-distance bike tour.
And finally, a link that’s not on our blog but still worth checking out: the Adventure Cycling Association’s new Bike Camping website – specifically aimed at shorter tours.
