Could there be a simple way to start saving money for a bicycle tour around the world? Quite possibly.
The typical US household spends $3,008 per year on dining out, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That's$250 per month spent on restaurants that could be stashed away in a bicycle travel fund.
Statistics compiled by The Next Challenge website found that the average monthly cost of cycling around the world is just $545.
That means that by foregoing restaurants for just 8 weeks, you might be able to finance a bicycle tour for an entire month.
Of course, real life is never as simple as statistics. But this may give you some food for thought.
