Cycling Around The World: The Ultimate Eco-friendly Adventure
Published on January 21, 2010
Nice piece but it hardly fits any eco message as each of these travels require transportation by car, taxi, bus and plane to the start of thes events plus all the support materials needed to be carried along by motor vehicles. Sprinkle in the low percentage of people that go on these tours and it puts in the last nail on the eco message coffin. I have two bikes, one for road and one for dirt but both hang on the back of my car to the start/finish points. On major cities this can be a plus but not on the 12 African event.
Great post Brit!
I work at BikeHike Adventures (multi-sport adventure travel company) so the fact that more people are taking bike tours is great news for us. ;)
If you ever feel like taking a biking adventure to a more remote location (we do a lot of custom trips to culturally rich and off-the-beaten-track locations), check out: http://bikehike.com

yeah... San Fran on a bike has been popping up for me lately. Guess I'm going to have to make a few phone calls come spring and get down there
