I'm getting ready for a big tour starting in the spring/summer and have been finding additional bike touring resources. I thought that new cyclists might find these helpful, so I'm sharing here. Please post additional ones that you find useful or inspiring.
www.crazyguyonabike.com Online journal from touring cyclists around the world. Tours range from overnight trips to multi-year world wid travels. Also has a forum, articles, product reviews and a marketplace.
http://www.adventurecycling.org/ Membership organization and bike travel experts. They produce detailed maps specific for touring cyclists. I haven't looked around the site much, but it looks like there is a lot there.
http://www.warmshowers.org/ Like couchsurfing, but for touring cyclists. They also has an iphone app for use in the field.
http://travellingtwo.com/ I just discovered this last week and have been very impressed. They have a great blog with a basic touring "how-to" guide that is free. They also produce a bike touring podcast with rather good production values and very useful topics. I believe that the creators are based in Europe.
http://bicycletouringpro.com/ This guy has some good stuff. He makes a living on this site, so he's going to try to sell you things. :)
Where's your big tour this year? I definetly like the first 3 websites, they are a must for any bike tourer. You should definetly write up a ride report for crazyguyonabike. Check out mine from 2 summers ago:
