I've been passionate about riding bikes and taking photos since I started learning how to do both when I was eight-years-old. It was a big year for me.
Years later, I discovered a book called the Tao Te Ching which introduced me to Chinese philosophy and lead me to China, Mongolia, Taiwan, and many more places around the world.
Then I met an amazing girl who shares my love of bicycling and adventure and somehow let me convince her to ride from China to Italy with me.
Albert Einstein once said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” We decided to take his advice literally.
Our friends in Kunming started Dali Bar in 2012 to make all-natural energy snacks for health-conscious people across China. A portion of the profits from every Dali Bar sold go to Village Progress, a partner organization our friends set up to improve health and education in underprivileged schools and rural areas in China.
We are still looking for more partners to help us achieve our goal of bicycling from China to Europe. In return for your help, we will tag and promote our sponsors and their products in our posts on Facebook and Instagram, as well as on WeChat (微信) and Weibo (微博). Erica and I both read, write, and speak Chinese fluently. So our sponsors will be part of the conversation with not only our friends and followers in North America and Europe but with those in China as well. If you are interested in partnering with us, please send me an email.
