Nomad bike tribe

Hej all,

nice new warmshowers web site, thanks for everybody that contributed!

I'm writing just to share the possible idea of create a kind of nomad bike tribe, it sounds
weird, but i find the vision quite interesting. Who likes this kind of endeavor? I'm writing around
to share the idea and to see what people think about. There are a lot of practical problems, let's say obstacles, or better stimulus :)  I like to voyage with the bike but many times i feel to engage in a life-deeper experience, more connected and involved.

I don't like to write a lot, depends, so i guess it would be better to understand what other people think about a such kind of idea! :)

It would be nice to share visions in this topic and try to gather people that have thoughts something similiar or that are stimulated about this idea.

I've often thought of this idea while touring over the last few years. I've got some relevant ideas I'm happy to share. Let's put things together! :)

Sweet! :)

Sweet! :)

I'm now in Miami, also open to rides (recently did a stint up the Atlantic Coast, over to Lake Okeechobee, and back down through the Everglades).

Just added a logo and some more text and images at the new site, pleae feel free to contribute more ideas.

One thought I've had is that we can operate as a sort of "metatribe" that rides together at different places and times, splitting up and reforming according to our respective desires. That way there's no presure on people to ride really far out of their way, yet we can still find common cause and ride together...

meeting points

I am not exactly a flock type and definitely prefer a singular action, but there is one thing that i would certainly enjoy while on the road – a sort of meeting points for WS members, casual places there you can arrive in and be sure you might meet another biker of your kind - a café, a workshop, or a private garden, there you could just drop in, have a chat and a cup of coffee, and move farther in your own direction. This would be nice!

Meeting Points

Maybe some people would just like a cup of coffee and some conversation before hitting the trail again ... I live right along the R3 in Hessen, Germany.

That sounds cool! We could add map data showing such locations, or just a plain web list...

Work with Warmshowers website

Maybe have a map where active cyclists can log in there current location and route on one interactive map

It would be nice also to find

It would be nice also to find some app of warmshowers.org where is possible to see the current location of people travelling, so if for example you find that another traveller is 80 km far from you so you can try to contact him/her and see if agrees to meet on the road or continue a part of the trip together.

What do you think? =)

One alternative would be for traveling cyclists just to update their profiles...

BTW we're now at hundreds of articles at BikeWOW! :)

That is something that is

That is something that is really missing in my opinion. People could choose whether their location is shown on the map and the application doesnt need to update more than once a day for example (for those who are in limited wifi areas )
