After our American adventure last year and many mini tours I have come some new conclusions and have a new batch of tips:
So after a small hiccup of mixing up the airports we were warmly greeted by our first WWOOFing (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) hosts Keith and Maree.

Its been a busy 14 months since we returned to the UK after completing our first international cycling tour, biking the 5,300 miles from New York to LA.
Bike tours don’t have to be huge adventures, get out for a weekend overnighter, visit some friends, family or Warm Showers host or camp ground and you will have just as much fun!
A busy start to the week turned into an educational and inspiring insight into alternative touring, hosting 5 cyclists in just 3 days!
