In the planning/moonshot phase of a potential trip between Kelowna and Vancouver between Aug 1 - Aug 12th. I am playing an ultimate frisbee tournament in Kelowna the last weekend of July, and potentially back to Kelowna 3 weeks later.
My partner started cycling during COVID and in 2021 she cycled her first tour with me to Kingston from Toronto (300 km). She is interested in doing more, and we are actively looking for route advice and pointers.
Consider using “Adventure Cycling “ routes
Cycling from Portland OR to Denver CO as the first leg of this journey. I'm going as light as possible - a credit card ride - and so would like to stay relatively close to civilization. I have 30 days to get to Denver - May 1 to May 31. I would like to use the Warmshowers network as much as possible.
Your suggestions are welcome. Be happy
I will try to make about 1200km, starting in Nantes and ending up in Montpellier.
It is my first time by bike in France, this will be a really nice trip.
I will be in Nantes, La Rochelle, Bordeax, Toulouse, Sete, Montpellier, and some more locations on the way.
It ist my first time with warm showers, I am happy to get to know other cyclists.
Planning on riding from Longmont CO to Pueblo CO and picking up the trans Am from there and going east first week in June 2023
Hitting RAGBRAI along the way?
I am going south to Pueblo then east thru Kansas. Missouri, southern Illinois then Kentucky to DC
Stay safe, enjoy those tailwinds!
I am embarking on a summer cycling adventure along EuroVelo 8, 7, and 6, starting in early July. I will begin in San Sebastian (Basque Country) and cross France via the V81 to reach the Mediterranean Sea. From there, I will follow EuroVelo 8, the Mediterranean Route. Next, I will transition to EuroVelo 7, the Sun Route, before reaching EuroVelo 6, the Danube Cycle Route, which will take me towards Vienna. Throughout the journey, I plan to camp and Warmshowers as my primary options for sleeping. My spanish omelette is delicious. Let's have it for dinner while we talk about adventures. If anyone is interested, feel free to join me, I would appreciate the company and travel a few kilometers together.
I'm riding with my husband a cycling trip from Salt Lake City to Glacier NP (from mid-June till 19th of July) . We are planning to visit Yellowstone NP, Teton NP and Glacier NP and many other places. We hope to get in touch with many other WarmShower's hosts.
PS: For those who want to visit us in Belgium, always welcome at our place (we live near Ghent (very beautiful historical city)!
Looking forward to meet all of you in Belgium and on our trip

My wife and I are arriving in Seattle with our foldies, on the 26th of May. We hope to see as much of that part of Washington as possible before we head to Port Angeles to take a ferry to Vancouver Island. We plan to go from there to Calgary to greet the arrival of our first grandchild in mid June. We hope to meet friendly and accommodating people along the way. We are from Malaysia and we have hosted several European cyclists through the years. Cheers.
This September I am planning on combining bike and train to make my way down the East Italian coast, then cross into Albania and through to Thessaloniki. Looking for company on the route, reply here or dm me if you are keen!
I'm planning to spend 10 days cycling starting Sunday 16th July in Haarlem, NL. My general plan is to do the Netherlands in the first week, then Belgium for a few days before getting the ferry from Calais. I'd be interested to meet people or in any suggestions you might have. I'm pretty flexible about plans.
Looking for fellow cyclists to join me on this ride (Aug 2023) through the Canadian Rockies. From Calgary to Glacier National Park. Staying in hotels along the route or camping for those who'd rather. No charge. Each rider pays their own way. ( https://sites.google.com/site/cyclebiglove/canadian-rockies-2023 )
Hi, we're Mel and Penne from Malaysia. We will be in Seattle from the 27th of May with our foldies. We hope to see as much of this part of Washington as possible before arriving in Port Angeles to catch a ferry to Vancouver Island. We're on the way to Calgary to greet on first grandchild in mid June. It would be nice if we can meet up with friendly and accommodating people along the way. Cheers.
Hello! I will be cycling the EuroVelo 15 from Den Haag on 17 August, and through all the way to Lake Toma on 7 September. Would be lovely to be joined by anyone interested. I plan on using the warm showers community to find accommodation, and also maybe camp some of it.
Hello to all,
Soon we will start the first leg of a big adventure, and cross Europe through the Balkans! We plan to arrive in Greece before winter, where we'll stop for a few months before crossing into Asia.
Looking forward to meeting a lot of you on the road :)
I am going on a solo bike packing trip the Netherlands and Belgium. Flying to Amsterdam from Philly.I plan to explore the two countries and visit the museums as I am an art lover. Seeking accommodation and advice for the best way to travel these two countries.
from 6 of July 23 I will ride from Trelleborg the West Coast of Sweden till Goteborg then I suppose I will go to Stockholm. Any suggestion or people who are available to host? Thank you :-)
Hello! I am a student of Industrial design, headed out on my first longer term bike/camping tour. My route at the moment is the Kobenhaven - Berlin path, then the Eurovelo 7 + 8 from Salzburg to Venice. I would love to connect with other cyclists along the way and find places to stay on my route; I am hoping to get set up with a tent and camp for most of the trip but an indoor spot to stay every once in a while would be awesome'
I am planning to cycle from Copenhagen on July 7th/8th at least until Rostock, and to be in Berlin until around the 13th - 18th before heading for Salzburg. I have heard that wild camping is not allowed in Germany, but that I may be able to stay on farms or camp on the sly: any local knowledge would be most welcome :-) I look forward to connecting with all you bike people!
Dear Hosts between Lofoten and Nordkapp!
I'm planning a tour between mid Aug and mid September. I have a ticket which likely takes me, my bike and tent to Tromsø on 11th of Aug. Would love to start to Nordkapp, get back by bus and ... from this point on I'm flexible. I'm thinking about cycling to Lofoten and when the time comes get back via a ferry to Tromsø.
Do you have any recommendations, must haves, vague ideas about what to experience, what/who to visit considering the time of the year in your lovely area?
Thanks and regards,
I am ready to start my next trip in South Korea, Planning to cycle from Incheon to Busan, hugging the west coast heading south and then up to Busan, no concrete plans to reach destinations by the evening, taking it by the grace of tail wind. I want to immerse in the Korean culture as much as possible, so please let me know foods (especially fermented food other than cabbage kimchi) that I have to try and off beat places I can visit. I would like to meet local people to have a cofee and talk to them.
After Busan I will take the ferry to fukuoka and work my way up to Tokyo. Same modus operandi as Korea. Love to meet local people and make new friends.
Awesome! In December of this year I will be riding solo across the Country. Departing from Monterey Ca. on December the 5th, taking the PCH down the coast, and then taking the Southern Tier across to Florida. Targeting 65 days from 12/5 to 2/3. Thank you.
I'm pretty much ready to ride this fantastic place doing it on stages like MTB and Gravel possibilities. Who else has a feeling? I've just spend couple of nights in alpine mode around Rainbow Mountain @Whistler. Next stage prob is Cumberland/Power River. Do wanna join me everybody is welcomed.
It's just an idea for now,but I'm exploring the possibility of touring Germany eastwards between Freiburg (Breisgau) and Bad Muskau,probably passing through Karlsruhe,Wurzburg, Erfurt and Leipzig. Solo trip, I'm happy to have a company for a day,but I won't ride very fast.
It will be a part of my early birthday celebration,so if you live along that trail and know a nice cafe,I can buy us a cake.
I’m touring the South Island from Nov 23 -Jan 13. So far I will be landing in Christchurch and heading to Nelson for Christmas to meet up Sith some friends.
Does anyone have route recommendations for a month and change on the South Island?
Id also like to get some paragliding in if possible and read that both Christchurch and Nelson both have good beginner sites (just got my p2). Cheers :)
Hi Samantha - There is so much to choose from cycling on the South Island. I would suggest checking out this NZ govt website to begin with - shows a numbers of cycling routes https://www.nzcycletrail.com/find-your-ride/23-great-rides/. The Tour Aotearoa - goes from the north to south tips - and also has a website where you can explore that route, and there is also a Coast to Coast trail that goes east to west across the south island. There are both road and MTB/gravel options also -so this might influence what type of bike you bring. Have fun planning and doing! - Liz
I'm planning two short tours for 2024 - both in the Netherlands:
* May 2024 will see me riding the 'LF Massroute' from Maastricht to Hoek van Holland over 6 days. Following mostly alongside the River Maas / Meuse, I'm looking forward to exploring the wonderful cycling infrastructure I hear so much about.
* September 2024 will see me riding 'Hell's Highway' between Leopoldsburg (Belgium) and Arnhem (Netherlands) over 3 days (Liberation Route Europe). 17th September 2024 is the 80th anniversary of 'Operation Market Garden'. I've just finished reading Cornelius Ryan's book ("A Bridge Too Far"). I look forward to visiting the many sites which commemorate the brave soldiers, airmen and civilians who gave their lives in trying to repulse the Wehrmacht from the Netherlands.
I haven't yet booked all of my accommodation for either trip. I'll be checking out WS hosts on my routes. If anyone can make some recommendations about places to visit / stay, I'd love to hear from you.
Happy cycling! Bill Evans / Shropshire, UK.
Hi Bill, on the last couple of days of my trans-Europe trip finishing in Groningen, I passed through Arnhem. I visited the WWII relics museum towards the north of the city ( https://en.arnhemsoorlogsmuseum.com/ ) and Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery. I highly recommend both sites, I was very glad that I visited them. While in Dutch cities I recommend you keep an eye out for war related memorials on the ground. In Nijmegen I believe that every place that a German bomb was dropped is marked with a small plaque. In Groningen, every house that was owned by a Jewish family until the Nazi invasion is marked with a brass plaque too. I assume there are many similar markers throughout other Dutch towns and cities.
As for places to stay, this is Warmshowers and the Netherlands has one of the greatest densities of hosts in the world, send some messages out and meet some local people ;) Otherwise, I camped at Natuurkampeerterrein Groesbeek for one night, it's a very nice campsite on the edge of the village, quiet and in a forest. It's organised by the council, or organisation and you just buy a night via a machine at the entrance and seems to function on some kind of goodwill basis. It's only a short cycle over to the cemetery the next morning.
Thank you Ryan for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.
Best wishes, Bill
