I'm not sure why this page is here...
But a links page seems almost mandatory, so, here are a few sites that have, or may have, at least tangential relevance to bicycle touring that might be of interest
Check out these trike manufacturers:
• Greenspeed the grand-daddy of triker builders
• HP Velotechnik an innovative German trike builder
• Inspired Cycle Engineering the name says it all
• MR Components another Oz trike builder, taking a different path...
• Windcheetah has georgous looking if (even more) expensive trikes
Or, you can check out a whole heap of (tadpole) trike stuff in one brilliant site:
• Trike Asylum a trike resource site that you gotta see to believe!
This next one is not a trike link, it's not even a recumbent link, it's a wedgie * link:
• Airnimal makes interesting upright folding bikes that even a triker can love
* a wedgie is a rude name for an upright bike, that is, a normal two wheel bike, and it refers to the relationship between the rider's bike seat and their backside
There are a heap of sites out there to help you plan a tour, a couple of the legendary sites are:
• Ken Kifer wrote the book as it were... his untimely death was left us all poorer, but check out his (archived) site, it has a heap of stuff on bike touring, still a good place to start
• George Farnsworth has everything you ever wanted to know (and more) about carting your bike to your tour location, whether by land, sea or air
and there's... oh, there are a zillion of them – go find them!
I find tour diaries (journals) interesting too. Reading about other's experiences can inspire, warn and otherwise inform planning of your own tour. Again, there are zillions of sites, a few of the most well-known are:
• Crazy guy on a bike a wonderfully titled and wonderfully eclectic collection of journals worth hours of investigation
• Trento Bike Pages the grand-daddy of bike touring sites – tho the latest incarnation of this site seems to have a problem displaying correctly in Internet Explorer, at least on my computer
• Mike Bentley has gathered a long long list of (sometimes problematical) links
Ahhh, left-overs! The stuff that gets left behind and/or doesn't fit into any neat category...
Where do we start? How about with advocacy? – It seems we all need someone to speak for us
• International Human Powered Vehicle Association again, the name says it all
• ozhpv the local Oz flavoured human powered vehicle association
• Bicycle Federation of Australia again, the local Oz flavoured cyclists association, you'll have your own local group too – go find them & support them!
Hmmmmmm, what else?
Why not just Google?
