    Still not ready ;). Haven’t forgotten about WorldPedal tho!

  • Move completed, cleaning up some broken sites today. Perhaps in 1-2 months when I find the time I will re-open registration for cycle touring enthusiasts :). Stay tuned!

  • Worldpedal is moving to a new server today :). I will keep this site on the backburner for sure and live forever. Someday I will find the time to continue working on our bicycle touring community.

  • Long time, no post!! I will be having a bit more time for WorldPedal soon and will likely reopen registration in the next couple days 🙂

  • Hi everyone, I have disabled new sign-ups for WorldPedal until I find more time for this project, if you are reading this and weren’t able to sign-up please send me an email via the contact form and I will have you manually added asap.

    Greetings from the Philippines and Happy Touring 🙂

  • I am back and semi-settled in our new home (in the woods LOL)… Have been cleaning worldpedal for the past 5 hours from spam and still not done…

  • Anyone still around? Sorry for not finding the time currently to continue building out the site but it will stay open as is for now… I just bought a small house and I am back in my part time travelling mode (6 months here and there and 6 months home LOL)…

  • I have bought my first recumbent bicycle ever 🙂 It’s a sort of short-trip-racer… Pictures to follow soon.

    In reply to: maxairedale posted an update Departure is on schedule for today 🙂 . Weather may be an issue later this afternoon 🙁 . We went through the bags one more time last night. We are planning to get 50 miles today […] View

    lol :D, where are you now Gary… how did you manage the first days back in the saddle??

    • Departed about 9am and headed straight into town on the main road.with no traffic. On the way out of town stopped at the Post Office to get some stamps and adjust load. Bike became more stable. Lots of hill climbing today. We walked up 5, YES 5 hills.

      Did not get as far as we wanted today, but are pleased with the progress. After all the hills…[Read more]

    • 4 days 153.59 miles. Today May 10th, we finally found some long stretches without hills

    Wow!! Real nice Gary… I am amazed the stand is holding all this… You guys will have an awesome time 🙂

    • Thanks Toni.

      That is Click-Stand http://click-stand.com/ When I ordered it about 4-5 years ago I questioned the man that makes them about it being able to support all that weight. He stated that it would be able to do it; I was not sure, but… Since the stand is not attached to the bike you have to set the brakes so that the bike will not move. N…[Read more]

    Wow nice Gary, without the BOB there would be no way to transport all this, right? Premium Comfy Prepared Cycle Touring – I like that! 🙂 Had to google: “bear resistant food container” makes total sense, I want one lol.. When are you heading out?

    • We are on schedule to depart on Monday May 7th. 🙂 The only thing that will stop us is weather. Neither of us want to start this trip in the rain.

      Between the stuff in the trailer and panniers we have about 120 lbs (54.5 kg) for the two of us. Without the BOB there is NO way we could put all that on one bike. If we were taking our singles we…[Read more]

    Lol, totally understand 🙂

    I did the same thing for years, just keep going (I never regretted it), you will be surprised how little money you will actually need (and how little you will have to work for it hehe).

    Welcome to WorldPedal :),

    Vancouver to Calgary sounds cool! Is that your first cycle touring trip?

    • I’ve done the ride before but it was with support. Did it in ’08 with my Father as he rode across Canada, I did the Vancouver to Calgary with him. My Mother met us at the end of the day with the gear in their VW van. This time its self supported so carrying all the gear.

    Welcome to WorldPedal, I just read your profile, cool stuff, let us know more about your planned cycling trip 🙂

    I have started the exact same way like you before I got interested in bicycle touring, me too I hitchhiked for years thru the world with almost no money, living like a bum lol (good times!)…

    • Hi Toni!

      No concrete plans yet, I am traveling right now with my girlfriend, a Latvian girl that I met during my travels -passing through her country-.

      We are in SE Asia but coming back Europe next week. There we plan to try to get money -working, sponsors, any option would be good for us- and as soon as possible get a couple of bikes, good gear…[Read more]
