Three years in the past I received a name from one among my previous school roommates saying that after years of seeing me go off by myself bicycle touring adventures, he lastly needed to attempt happening a motorcycle journey of his personal.

We spoke on the cellphone for hours that night time and I passionately crammed him in on all the teachings I had realized about bike journey over time.

When our dialog ended late that night, I sat down and thought to myself, “If I may also help one individual plan and put together for his or her first bicycle touring journey by merely chatting with them over the cellphone, I ponder how many individuals I may assist if I had been to put in writing down every part I find out about bicycle touring and submit all of it on the Web?”

Two days later, was born!

On October twenty seventh, 2007 I printed a brief article about my plans for the way forward for this web site … and that second marked the start of all of it. It was the start of Bicycle Touring Professional.

Three years has since passed by, nevertheless it feels prefer it all occurred simply yesterday. And despite the fact that I’ve put in 1000’s of hours price of labor into this web site, I’ve had a lot enjoyable engaged on the positioning that these numerous hours slaving in entrance of my pc really feel like mere minutes.

In three yr’s time, has grown from a tiny self-coded web site that solely my mother and father and greatest buddies would sometimes look at… to a world enterprise with greater than 30,000 month-to-month readers in international locations all around the world.

It’s these messages that make me need to proceed my work right here and carry on serving to others be taught in regards to the joys of touring by bike.
