Credit Card Touring is simpler, you don't need that much gear and preparation, at the expense of having to pay more for food and accommodation. Fits me perfect. :-)

Seedy hotels, yes, there are lots of them, but you only stay one night. And I often bring my bike to my room, so nothing can be stolen.

First, terribly sorry about late response.

You have an excellent point about sending copies of passports by email! I will tweak that section to take that into account.

Thanks for excellent advice about informing bank about CC charges in foreign countries! Will fix that too.

Also good advice about beards. I will look at that too.

So grateful for your thorough reading. Much much appreciated!

I just wanted to say I recently wrote a book on bike touring. More specifically lightweight touring, or as it is also known, Credit Card Bike Touring.

Instead of publishing it I decided to put it all on the net:

It contains a lot of tips and advice, including packing lists. I have also added a list of all trips I have done:

Feedback are most welcome, preferably by email to, but I will also try to hang out here a bit.
