Kate & John are searching for good food— and beer.
Kate and John are in search of good food and beer. So far, they’ve traveled over 3,500 miles, pedaling mile-by-mile on their bicycles, across the United States.
Biking to good food and beer
Kate and John are biking to the source to “figure out how good food is produced, and why people should choose it over ‘conventionally produced’ food.” On their way they’ll share good food with others, encouraging those they meet to “think twice about what’s going into their mouth, combating food-related diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.”
On their world-wide journey, Kate and John are documenting and sharing the differences in food production and farming techniques.
Who are Kate and John?
They’re New Yorkers. Kate’s a teacher from New York City. Upon completion of the two-year trip, she’ll work in science and environmental education. John’s a lighting technician in New York City, most recently for Howard TV. After a final farewell to fellow staffers, John jumped on his bike and left. John and Kate ride Surly bikes, even going sofar as to name them — Dorothy and Uncle Henry.
You can follow them on FoodCyclist.com, where they’ve got a photo-filled blog and travel diary videos — a lively demonstration of “how to pitch a tent” is just one of many things you’ll discover there.
Where are Kate and John now?
They’re right here — just finishing a bit of time off, exploring the San Juan Islands and a bit of British Columbia.
As part of their search for good food and beer, we’ve invited them to our beer store. We’ve got plenty of good beer.
Kate and John will be pedaling to 99 Bottles, riding right to the store with all of their gear on Sunday, October 16. Swing by and meet them at noon, opening time for the beer shop. Sample a few beers; hear stories of our local and organic farmers, what it’s like to pedal across the nation, and what good beer they’ve tried.
