Watch out TripAdvisor. Strava Gets into the Travel Business.
Strava Local, a carefully curated, local-approved guide for runners and cyclists, gives you the low down on where to ride (and eat) in 12 cities around the world.

"Perhaps some of us are meant to move around every few years, change jobs and live many different micro lives." 
Four years ago, I dismantled my life in New York and headed to a place where I knew no one.

These peer-to-peer travel sites connect tourists with locals. 
Airbnb isn't the only site that's tapped into the sharing economy to forever change the way we see the globe.

"But without complementary actions to encourage healthy alternative options to the processed foods that have flooded the Mexican market and the country’s poorest neighbourhoods in particular, the tax seems to be merely a grab for a share of the lucrative junk food trade that the government's own policies have facilitated."
For several years now, transnational food companies have understood that their main growth markets are in the South. To increase their profits they need to “dig into the pyramid”, as one company puts it, meaning they need to develop and sell products targeted at the millions of the world's poor.

"But telling people to avoid the cultural richness of Oaxaca and Chiapas or the excellent surf of Baja California Sur because there are dangerous spots in other regions is like suggesting people avoid Yellowstone because of violent protests in New York City."
Everything you need to know about which parts of Mexico to see and which areas to avoid this year.

If taking a crack at the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trail has been on your mind of late, you’re not alone. But reality check: Most of us are not in a position to hike for six months straight.

"You have to be willing to imagine a world in which we recognize that what we’re called upon to do is not necessarily to sacrifice; instead, it’s often to abandon what impoverishes and trivializes our lives: the frenzy to produce and consume in a landscape of insecurity about our individual and collective futures."

Such a shame. The 2015 Ultra Caballo Blanco, scheduled to take place this past weekend, was cancelled due to drug-related violence in the town of Urique in Mexico's Copper Canyon region.
