In 2009, we sold everything we owned to travel by bike. Over the following three years, we pedaled across beautiful landscapes, connected with kind-hearted people, and explored dozens of small and rural communities – all while sharing stories from our travels, with the goal of inspiring others to also travel by bike. Along the way, we began to recognize the ways in which bicycle travel can bring economic development to rural areas – and we began to partner with community members and rural tourism advocates to develop and grow the concept of bicycle tourism. Now based out of Portland, Oregon, we work with communities and agencies who are using bicycling as an economic development tool. We are also on the hunt for awesome biking AND fishing destinations and love exploring multi-sport adventures.
