Finally, Darren opens up the webinar up questions and answers. While chatting live with people from all around the world, the Bicycle Touring Pro takes a moment to answer your biggest, most-pressing question about bicycle touring and world travel.

    I’ve done a bit of bicycle touring, but I’m envious of how much you seem to get out and about. How do you afford it? Do you have a financial breakdown of your year to year budget? I would tour every year if I could afford it, but it seems extremely unlikely. Thanks for this resource! I’ve enjoyed using your website for a while now.
