Can you believe this is the tenth issue?

We are so happy to share this one with you. This special, extra large edition is full of fantastic photography and entertaining tales that will make you want to grab your bike and hit the road.
Bicycle Traveler launched five years ago.

We wanted to be a magazine that showed what cycle travel is about and why people dream of undertaking round-the-world tours. Since then we’ve grown (more than 19,000 subscriptions) yet we are still passionate about publishing stories and images that illustrate this wonderful way to see the world.

My sincere thanks go out to all of you who have helped make the publication a success. Your contributions to Bicycle Traveler have been the heart of the magazine.

September 2011

The first edition of Bicycle Traveler magazine!

Finally, from a Nepalese hotel room we have been able to upload the first edition of Bicycle Traveler magazine. It’s come a long way since we started putting it together in Thailand a half year ago.

Many of the contributors are also on the road in all parts of the world yet via facebook and e-mail we are able to make contact. Some of them even turned out to be personal friends of each other and that fact really pointed out to me how international the bicycle touring community has become.

Friedel, Peter, Tom and the rest of the contributors, thanks for your help and encouragement!
