Edinburgh based looking for tour buddies

Postby peterjph » 14 Sep 2017, 9:55pm

Hi all,

I'm based in Edinburgh and looking to meet up with some other cycle tourers over the winter to a) see if we could stick each other's company on tour and b) plan a tour! I'm flexible on dates but I'm looking at early spring. Potential destinations would be Chile (catch the end of summer there), Morocco, or South Africa, or anywhere else climatically and wanderlust-ily suitable!

I've not done any huge tours before but I did 3 weeks in Norway this year (1200km so not massive days) and several smaller tours around Scotland.

I'm in my early 30's and would rather meet people somewhere near my age. That's about it in terms of criteria...apart from owning a bike and having the time and funds to go on a tour!

Hi Peter,

I'm thinking about perhaps going on a tour at the end of this year.

I'm 35 and have never done a tour before. However, I have endurance for walking and running long distances.

I'm keen on Morocco and Chile. Can you speak Arabic, French or Spanish?

I can put my bike on the train and join you in Edinburgh.

New to this website, can we chat on the phone perhaps?
