Hi there,

I am about to buy my first bike made for international bike tours. I would like to meet like-minded people from over the world to cycle with or to meet on my travels. Any tips would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards,

Neil Penny.

Hi Neil,

If you haven't already, I suggest you check out the oddly-named www.warmshowers.org and join that community for all sorts of ways to meet touring cyclists. I believe warmshowers stared as a sort of couch-surfing community for bikers and has now expanded beyond that initial focus.

Check 'em out online - I believe this type of community may be especially helpful to you.

Best of luck!
