I really hope that WorldPedal grows big enough to have real meetings with our members in the future. Here is one of my dreams I had for a VERY long time: 15-20 cycle tourists meet up at an agreed place and time to tour 2-3 small countries on our bicycles in a couple weeks together. I will join the event with my wife and our volkswagen camper/bus to carry spare parts, some extra luggage, cooking materials, first aid materials, water, food, beer, possibly a portable shower of some sort, even a spare bicycle or 2 etc… We will go stealth camping everyday (needs a little organization to fit such a big group – but totally doable in europe for example) as well on busy streets the camper will be slowing the traffic and giving our cyclists more buffer and safety. Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks and Dinner will be served at an agreed point on route for the day. In the evenings there will be music, bonfire, talk and more in our “base camp”… Well that’s in my head, and if this community grows and we find enough like-minded bicycle travelers – It will really happen 🙂 – Just for fun, I will set the first meeting for spring/summer next year (will post an event before next week) and see if we can find enough interested cyclists until then, and if not we will try again for 2013 🙂 – Please spread the word… Cheers!
