Recently I've been trying to figure out where my next bike tour will be, and after scouring blogs and forum posts I've realised how helpful it would be to have a community ranked list of countries and how they compare for bike touring. Like IMDb or Nomadlist, but for touring.
I've created a simple spreadsheet to get started, and would love your help filling it out. Everyone on here has a lot more touring experience than me!
The main things are to rate how enjoyable each country is to tour (doing your best to ignore cost as budgets can range so wildly between people), and how safe the roads felt to ride on. My rating system is a bit clunky to allow multiple people to rate each country, but hopefully works for now.
My future plans are to combine this with some public data, especially weather trends into a simple website where people can filter and search countries, and have a jumping off point when planning a tour. I might also need to look at breaking down countries into regions or similar. One rating for the whole of the USA doesn't make much sense.
Would love to hear and feedback or thoughts you have.
