One of my favorite ways to waste time during the winter is to read the bike touring blogs posted at CrazyGuyOnABike.com It’s a website which allows touring cyclists to post the journal of their rides in real time. There are thousands of bike tours to read about there, on trips all over the world . The stories and the photos are inspiring. There’s also a forum which includes reviews of gear, tips and how-to’s.
But it’s the cycling blogs and the stories which fascinate me. Check it out, and be prepared to spend many hours imagining yourself on a great adventure.
