    • Food Cycles Bike tour 2012/2013

      Occasionally in our lives we take a journey into the unknown, pointing our feet deliberately on the road to adventure in the pursuit of our passion and self discovery. The courage to begin comes from the desire to rub up against the unknown, to test our limits and leave behind our comfort zone.

      When two young women, Tuula and Hannah, approached Hummingbird with their plan: to bicycle across America from West to East, sharing the value of eating locally grown food and bicycle based transportation— it seemed a natural fit with Hummingbird’s bike based delivery systems and emphasis on growing and enjoying local food.

      They will be visiting communities along the way to share the potential and vision they have for healthy local economies, and write about their journey as they go. We wanted to join them, but gave food and funds instead. We look forward to hearing their story as they experience the adventure unfolding.
