I Need Your Help To Keep This All Going
Many people believe that Bicycle Touring Pro is run by a big company with 30+ employees... or that I have corporate sponsors giving me tons of money to travel around the world, but that is certainly NOT the case.
Believe it or not, I do all of the work on this website by myself. Since 2007, all of the articles, books, emails, interviews, photos, podcasts and videos that you see on the Bicycle Touring Pro website and YouTube channel have been created by me (Darren Alff) in my spare time. This takes up an enormous amount of time and energy... and it costs me thousands of dollars each and every year.
I run Bicycle Touring Pro on a shoestring budget, which is why any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks to the generous donations I receive from a handful of supporters all around the world, I'm able to focus on creating regular, high-quality photos, videos, articles and podcasts; invest further in developing the Bicycle Touring Pro website; and cover the costs related to my bicycle touring activities.
Thank you in advance! Your support is something I am so incredibly grateful for!
