Frequently Asked Questions
We are a community of touring cyclists and those that support them. Our platform provides the technology for reciprocal hospitality for cyclists and hosts. What once started as a spreadsheet of names more than 10 years ago, we are now a community of more than 185,000 users across the globe. As a registered non-profit organization based in Colorado, USA, we rely upon the generous donations of our users and a nominal user fee to keep our technology up to date.
After you have submitted your user application, you can go to the map and search by name (if you know who you are looking for) or search by location (country, town, province, etc) then go to the selected profile and enquire. Please read the host’s profile for any special requests and use the contact button to send them a message. If the map shows clusters, zoom in. Please note, the drop-down search menu will allow you to see all users in that area (the default is only users that have been active in the last 12 months).
