New Bike touring site
« on: November 13, 2007, 08:19:53 pm »
I wanted to announce a new bike touring tips: www.biketouringtips.com

The idea behind this site is to create an indexed, on-line bike touring archive holding websites, discussion threads, touring jounals, and personal wisdom.  The archive is indexed by location and topic and can be searched by either or both.  The archive currently has over 400 entries dealing with more than 50 countries.

The archive is designed to allow anyone to enter information into it after a free registration.

To see range of archive entries go to this link.

Thanks,

Ray

Yes it is.

I created it over the past few months and have managed to gather over 400 entries in the meantime.

I hope to add more features as the need arises.

I also hope to get more people adding information than just me.  It is just now starting to happen.

OK Ray.

I added a post: "Coast To Coast in 93 Days". I have another article I can add, "GPS Goes Coast To Coast", but I'll hold off to see how many hits I get.

Paul,

Thanks for entering your site.

Two things.  

I changed the location you entered to be United States/Coast to Coast as I felt it described the location better.  Here the new link.

Please enter the other one, too.

Thanks,

Ray

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I've added a feature that I really like to the site. In addition to listing the entries by date (most recent first) you can now list the entries by "popularity." That is, you can see the ones that have been read the most.

It is interesting to see what people have been looking for! The first page is dominated by entries without locations on them and by entries about equipment.

This link will take you to the page with the entries listed by popularity: www.biketouringtips.com/displayPopular.html .

If you have any other suggestions on what to add to the site, please let me know.

This is an update on this site (www.biketouringtips.com).

It now has over 1500 entries on 95 countries.

There is an entirely new interface and the site now has articles and touring journals.
