Title: How do I join home sharing list?
Post by: colegrov on February 25, 2004, 05:06:13 pm
That title probably didn't make sense, but you are reading anyways, so I will explain.  I have heard about a list that you can be on if you open up your home or property to bikers passing through.  Then you can also get a list of other people that share their homes and properties to touring bikers.  Has anyone heard of this before?  If so, where do I find out about it and how do I become a part of it?  I am planning a low budget tour and would like to meet other tourers and save money this way.  Thanks for the help.  Griff Colegrove

Kurt,   Thanks a lot for telling me about that page.  It is one of
the coolest ideas I have seen for touring.  I tried to do the
thumbs up, but it didn't work.  Thanks again,
    Griff

There is also a start to a hospitality list on http://www.crazyguyonabike.com. Go to the site and click on Directory, then click on hospitality. There are only 4 of us offering shelter there right now, but the hope is that more cyclists will add their names.

Another place to look is http://www.servas.org. Servas is an international organization that has a list of travelers and hosts. You must be approved as a traveler.
