I’m currently engaged with a large-scale project to develop off-road trails through the Caucasus Mountains. Regretfully I will not be able to answer emails with questions about cycle touring during this time. If there’s an article you’d like to see published on a specific topic, please feel free to request it using the form below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me plan my bike trip?

Sure. Sell everything. Quit your job. Get a bike. Ride. Need more help? Check out the advice section. It contains over 400,000 words of information. That’s almost as much as all six Lord Of The Rings books combined.

Should I buy Bike A or Bike B?

Have you test-ridden either of them? No? Go and do that. Test-ride some other bikes too. Then choose the one that feels right.

I’ve ordered something and it hasn’t turned up. Help!

Please visit the support page for the product you ordered and get in touch using the specific email address or contact form provided. I don’t always deal personally with support requests and may not be able to help directly.

Can you help me with a specific route question?

Almost definitely not, unless you know for 100% certainty that I’ve been there recently. The best sources of up to date info for questions about specific routes are the Thorn Tree, Crazy Guy On A Bike, and the Bicycle Touring Facebook group.

How can I get a visa for Iran?

You’ll need to ask a visa agent, not the spouse of an Iranian citizen who doesn’t need a visa – sorry!

Would you consider publishing an advert, sponsored infographic, paid text link, commercial guest post, or other form of content marketing?

Absolutely not – sorry.

Can you review a product I’m involved with?

When it comes to gear, I’m interested in what small-scale, independent, ethically-minded folk are doing. So if your operation fits that description, feel free to get in touch.
