Kai & Sheila

Our motto: Actions express priorities. (Mahatma Gandhi)

Our goal: Simplify life so that we can focus on work that is important and meaningful to us.

In a call to live more sustainable lives, we’ve committed ourselves to changing our lifestyle to better reflect our values. We’ve miminized our belongings, paid down debt, quit our jobs and built our own tiny, off-grid, home (180 square feet).

We’re currently learning how to live simply from the seats of our bicycles. We consider our self-supported and open-eneded bicycle tour around the world a pilgrimage, one in which we hope to discover community, hope and people affecting change through every day action.

Christi & Tauru

Christi and Tauru are currently (April 2012) riding in Chile, on their way to an 18-month journey across roughly 16,000 miles and 15 countries on a tandem bike from Argentina to Alaska.

Along the way they’ll stop at schools for the visually impaired to talk about their story in hopes to raise awareness. You see Christi is blind and Tauru is going blind. They hope to inspire others with disabilities that anything can be accomplished.

This isn’t the first time they’ve set out on a long adventure. In 2009 they completed a trip across the US.

“This image is rounding the northern end of Cape Breton and riding a Dean 29er mountain bike with a Rohloff hub. My past trips include the Riva del Garda area of Italy, the Blue Ridge Parkway USA, Route 76 Trans-Am west to east, and Ireland on a tandem.”

“The next trip is this summer (2011): Switzerland’s Alpine Bike 1 with a return trip through Italian Dolomites. After that, my sites are set on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.”
