Hosting Touring Cyclists


Recommended Posts

Warmshowers is a site where cyclists get together online to offer other cyclists somewhere to stay, be that a bedroom or a bit of grass in the garden to pitch their tent.  You can offer other facilities such as free food or a place to cook their own, shower, washing machine, tools, sag wagon or whatever you want.  You get to meet some great people with interesting stories to tell.  I had a young Ukranian woman stay last year, who had great stories to tell.  She used my place as a base to leave most of her stuff so that she could go touring around the rest of Shetland, staying for a few nights in between.


It would be nice to see more hosts in Shetland.  Cycling is a great way of travelling around, and anyone who is will to cycle this far up north surely deserves a place to put their head at night, especially as they are usually travelling on a tight budget!  You don't need to be a cyclist to host cyclists, just a lovely person!


If this sounds like it might be interesting have a look at www.warmshowers.org
