I was recently recommeded to this forum for these questions so I'm new here. I'm at a point in my life where I think I want to take a year or more to cycle country to country. The only catchy thing is that I think I'm looking at doing this as a woman solo. Now, I wouldn't hesitate on the solo part if I were doing a RTW trip by planes, trains, buses, etc. It finally hit me that as I was engaging public transport travelers about the chick cycling solo concept, something wasn't translating. That something is the thousands of miles of desolate road that the other travelers don't ususally get to see hence, can't speak to. So, in this round-about way that's my questions. Can anyone speak to pedaling the world's desolate paths solo & female? I've heard of men doing it but never women. Any thoughts what-so-ever you might have would be great to hear.
