I've been wondering how one starts to plan a trip around the world. Are there any good sources that
specifically deal with information, routes, and the problems involved?

Thanks

Hello Scrubby,

A good place to start is Travel to the Horizon: www.raph.nl It contains over 700 links (validated
weekly!) with information on cycling in almost all countries in teh world.

CU!

Have you read any books written by previous world circumcylclists?

(Ouch! That sounds painful.)

There's a lot to be gleaned from those.

I pinned up a map of the world, looked a possible routes, found some travel guides and once I
started just went with the flow.

Have you read any books yet?

Try "Miles from Nowhere" by Barbara Savage "Full Tilt: Dunkirk to Delhi by bicycle" by Dervla Murphy
(for that matter any of her books) , "Off the Map: Bicycling across Siberia" by Mark Jenkins.
