    Beautiful concept Farm Stay / Bicycle Touring. My belief is it will surpass the high priced commercial sag supported “touring” in short order. Thank you so much for sharing….

  • Bicycling is a big tent and there will always be room for different types of riding. We’re really excited at what a network like this could mean in terms of diplomacy for bikes and small rural economies!

    Wow, this is brilliant! My wife and I are doing a loop through Oregon in July that will be mostly camping but we’re hoping to find a few accommodations along the way that will give us a chance for some luxury. A quick search of the Farm Stay site showed me that there are a couple of interesting locations on our route. What a great way to enrich the bicycle travel experience, thanks for sharing this!

  • Thanks, Russ, for the great visit and write-up. Wonderful to share ideas for the bike tour-farm connection. We actually have over 900 farms and ranches on the Farm Stay U.S. site at this point and that number is growing weekly!

    To Matthew, this is a new idea for many of us so just explain what facilities you require and I think you will find you can be accommodated!

    It’s funny what kinds of facilities pass for luxury on a bike tour (a warm shower, a bed, cooking and laundry facilities). You can find most of this in rural areas but it usually means checking in to a motel and finding the local laundromat, which doesn’t always feel like it’s adding to the richness of the whole bike tour experience.
