    Open your house to touring cyclist?

    I recall hearing about a place where people could list their homes if they were willing to host bicycle tourers traveling through - offer a backyard to camp in, a hot shower, etc. Does anyone know about this? Is there a website?

    I live about 10 blocks off the pacific coast bike route, and have a big (sandy) backyard.

    alright so... so far I've picked www.couchsurfing.com and www.warmshowers.org and www.HIUSA.org (hostels) off this forum. are there anymore that people know about??? is there a list of all the hostels in the usa anywhere on the vast web??? These are wonderful for shoe-string travelers such as myself. thanks!

    Some people list warmshowers on the crazyguyonabike site and have nothing but good things to say about it. Theres also a hostel list there too if Im not mistaken. Adventure cycling also has camp ground lists.
