I have just completed the Eurovélo 6 and I would like to share my experience. I have really enjoyed hosting cyclists from all over the world and I was hoping to experience things from the other side while I was travelling. I can fully understand that people are not always available or simply want a break from hosting, but most people didn't even reply to my requests. I was beginning to wonder if there was something in my profile that was putting people off before meeting other cyclists who had the same problem! I suppose this isn't really surprising when you see the percentage of replies on some people's profiles. I can only guess that a lot of people are on Warmshowers to get free accomodiation for themselves when they are travelling and I find this very disappointing.
Lack of response from hosts.
