I have been developing a bike touring website for the past few months and am ready to have it tested by someone other than me.
There is a huge amount of useful information on the bikeforums site but it is very hard to locate. In fact, the same questions get asked and answered over and over again.
The idea behind this website is to create an archive of bike touring information that is indexed both by location and topic. There are three location levels (country, state, city/place) and two topic levels (each topic has several sub-topics). It is my hope that the site will gather useful bike touring information that is easy to find.
I have entered some information into the archive. Most of it involves California, where I live and have toured extensively. I have many more to enter.
It is my hope that experienced bike tourists will take the time to add to the archive.
The site is www.biketouringtips.com. Viewing the existing tips can be done without registration. However, you need to fill out the free registration to enter tips/questions into the archive or add comments on existing entries (which I hope you will!). I plan to add more functionality as time goes on.
I would greatly appreciate your checking out this site and giving me any and all feedback that you like.
This is the first time I've announced this site, so I guess this is the "big" rollout!
Thanks for your time.
