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.

A vivid community requires enough active members
One of our biggest concerns is whether we are able to get the people that currently form the big and wonderful community of WarmShowers.org to move to something new.
For us there are two options: We can either build something new or try to join something that already exists.
Please, give us some feedback what you would consider doing.
Also, please ask your WarmShowers friends to fill this form, too. Thank you! :)
What do you look for when using WarmShowers.org?
As a host: I am a traveler by myself, I have been there before and I just want to help
As a guest: Sometimes I just need a shower, and a safe dry place to stay
As a host and guest: To meet and hangout with likeminded people, who share my passion for bicycle touring
As a guest: To get to know people local to where I travel to (cultural exchange)
As a host: To meet people from other cultures (cultural exchange)
As a guest: To avoid spending money on accommodation
How happy are you with WarmShowers.org?
Would you consider switching to a new platform?
I would change to something new, dedicated and exclusive to bicycle tourers and those who want to host them
I'll join a Cyclists circle at Trustroots.org (
