Is It Safe For Women To Go Bicycle Touring Alone?

By Darren Alff

In this episode of the Bicycle Touring Pro Adventure Podcast, you’re going to hear from a young woman named Shirine Taylor who has been bicycle touring around the world… on her own… and with her boyfriend… for the last couple years.

During my interview with Shirine, we’re going to talk about some of the best and worst parts of traveling alone, and we’ll answer one of the most common questions I get from female bicycle tourists: “Can women travel alone?”

The answer, as you can likely guess, is “YES!” Women are just as capable of traveling around the world as men – whether that be on a bicycle, with a backpack, or in any other way. There are some difficulties to traveling alone as a woman, however, as you will hear from Shirine. However, these factors haven’t prevented this young twenty-something from setting out on her own and seeing the world.
