Open and free bicycle hospitality exchange service
We are a group of passionate users of WarmShowers.org.
We love the possibilities of that community and the spirit of its members.
WarmShowers used to be open and inviting. Discussions were held in public, feedback and questions were handled in a publicly visible forum, membership was possible for everyone and free.
Unfortunately, a lot of that changed in the past years: Decisions are now made by a board that is hardly reachable and does not give insights to their decision process, critics are not welcome, membership is only available to the ones that can afford it, apps became highly priced and source code was made private, ...
That direction made us, a group of volunteers (former developers of the old WarmShowers app for Android), decide to build an alternative platform for a world-wide community of bicycle travellers and those who want to host them.
We envision a platform from the community for the community. A community that welcomes everyone. A community that does decisions democratically. A community full of possibilities and hospitality.
Let us become open and transparent again. Forever.
