I am a cartographer at Adventure Cycling Association. I also write a column for our organizational blog. Recently we've been addressing the behaviors and expectations of traveling cyclists and the people who host them.
Since Warmshowers is the leader in this movement, I would love to have involvement from the Warmshowers community. If you'd like to participate in the conversation, please read my two posts on the topic and leave comments there or here as appropriate. Or you may email me directly if you prefer: jhmilykoATadventurecyclingDOTorg
This post started the conversation: Bicycle Travel Etiquette http://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/blog/bicycle-travel-etiquette/
The latest, which is part 1 of a 4 part series is An Introduction to Bicycle Travel Etiquette http://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/blog/an-introduction-to-bicycle-travel-etiquette/
I look forward to having this conversation with you to maintain the best of this world of home based hospitality.
