181 Free Articles About Bicycle Touring, World Travel And Lifestyle Design

By Darren Alff

2009 was one hell of a year!

At this time last year I was emerging from my apartment in downtown Luzern, Switzerland and celebrating the first of what would become 254 days of bike travel in 16 different European countries.

Since that time, I have covered thousands of miles on my bicycle (and on foot); written nearly two-hundred different articles on the topics of world travel, bicycle touring and lifestyle design; and I’ve been able to support myself while traveling about (despite the so-called “recession”).

By my standards, 2009 has been one fantastic year… and I plan on making 2010 even better!

Before we get too far into the New Year, I thought I would take some time to share with you the 181 articles that were published this year FOR FREE on BicycleTouringPro.com. I’ve bolded the articles I believe you should check out first… so scroll on down and see if there is anything that strikes your fancy.

I hope you enjoy what you find… and please stay tuned, as there’s a lot more in store for Bicycle Touring Pro in the New Year!

    I can’t send you a bicycle unfortunately. I wish I could. In fact, I wish someone could send me a free bike! I really need a new 26″ touring bike 🙂

    To all travellers,
    Last evening I had a discussion/debate with friends who are cyclists, cilmbers, backpackers, adventure kayakers etc…..
    Our conversation topic, as is most frquent (unless it`s the beer tab!!) is about various gear. One of my friends brought up the point of how marketing and how to/what to buy articles/books, can influence people immensly.
    My personal angle is, outdoor adventure/travel is not a fashion show, and if it works for you, then it`s the right piece for you.
    I would really like to hear from the wider world of travellers on this comment?
    I can also be reached via email; zunani2001@yahoo.com
    Happy Adventuers and Safe Travells
    Peace Wil
    PS Wasn`t sure where to post this…….

    I have traveled all of South East Asia and many other parts of the world by bicycle and in good weather its possible to wash and dry clothes overnight and as such one can get away with truly minimal amount of clothing. My take is that clothing and equipment should be functional and if you are on the go, then your appearance will be new to where ever you go. Unfortunately, your photos of yourself will be a bit boring.

    Happy cycling,
