Hello happy nomads!
I am looking for people to tour the world with. Currently I'm working in Michigan, hoping to do the tour by this fall, October or November.
So far, it's me committed to the trip, possibly another female friend might join me. If I can't locate anyone, I may do the bike tour solo. However, my family would be very concerned and I, personally, prefer to ride with someone. To any female cyclist that traveled solo in foreign countries: What are the safety concerns for a young woman to tour solo? Is it too risky to travel Central and South America alone?
If not the whole route, how about joining me for part of the tour?
I am on a budget! I'd like to keep my spending as minimal as possible. Ride for charity? Yes! I would like to raise awareness on environmental issues and social justice, promoting green solutions and permaculture. Excuse me for not having a detailed plan here, but I feel the need to locate touring partners now, then we can figure out the charities and fundraising later.
This would be my second tour. Last year, my friend and I moved to Detroit from San Francisco on our bicycles. I miss the road and the US tour was a relaxed adventure. Having never traveled internationally, the though of a world bike tour confuses and intimidates me. Looking for support!
Please contact me for questions and if you will ride with me, know anyone that is planning a similar tour, or links that can help me locate travel partners.
