If you are a bike tourist you should know about WarmShowers.org. It is an important community resource that provides "hospitality for touring cyclists" in the U.S. and abroad. It is comprised of hosts who provide some type of accommodation (tenting on the front lawn, to private bedroom in their home), which includes a warm shower.
Their website has videos and FAQs to explain the details and I encourage you to look into WarmShowers if you think you will be touring, and also if you don't. It just might whet your appetite for adventure, travel, sharing, and learning about interesting people you would otherwise never meet.
