LGBT+ Cyclists
« on: November 17, 2019, 02:00:10 am »
I'm sure I'm not the only male, cisgendered, bisexual that rides their bicycle long distances with (almost) all their worldly possesions loaded on board.

Hopefully, this topic/post won't get pulled by the powers-that-be because I would like to hear from others about their experiences traveling on two wheels.

No disrespect, but what does being LBGT have to do with any of that?   Pick any bicycler in bright colors and spandex and we all look and act weird to non-bicyclists!

In short, bicyclers are already a minority in an automotive centered world and we all got more in common than not on 2 wheels. 

Ride on.

I would guess you would pretty much have the same issues as any male bisexual traveling the world.  You are just doing it on a bike.  If you are just being you, you probably will be fine.  I have found that when I push (speech, dress, attitude, etc.) a specific issue , i.e. sexual, political, religion, environmental, whiskey, etc., that is when I run into "trouble".  Just because I believe in something doesn't mean I need to discuss it or promote it.

 Perhaps you might get more real-world answers from one of the many FB pages that cater to long-distance bicycle travelers.
Tailwinds, John

Fortunately the bathroom behind the big green curtain is already unisex
