I have launched a (free) bikepacking webzine at http://trails-tours.com

Take a look, if you are interested. I update it rather frequently.

Hope PMs are working now - and thanks for the info.

Incidentally, there is a page for people to post links to their own trips or sites. Look here: http://trails-tours.com/sites

There is also a newsletter and various social media options for those who want to keep an eye on the site for updates: http://trails-tours.com/follow

Some improvements on 11/22/2013 03:01:33 MST Print View

I have updated the site with a section for adventure races. There are a few entries already. No doubt it will grow pretty organically.

In addition, there is now an explanatory page about navigation options: http://trails-tours.com/using-site/ - it shows how to use the site for topical research. As the content mounts up, I think this will become increasingly useful, e.g. when planning a trip.

More improvements ;-) on 11/30/2013 05:22:59 MST Print View

I have added a few 'specials' under Features (in the top menu) - one for beginners, one for travel tips and one for trail skills. If you can think of any other topic groups that ought to be bundled, I would appreciate your suggestions. I would also like to link to a good, worldwide calendar for adventure races. Does anyone know of one?

This is a great looking site, Martin. I've added it to my RSS reader for future updates.
