Waking up early in the morning to cycle is not easy. Neither is finding a healthy breakfast on the road. Most places serve fried chicken, rice or noodles, but there comes a time when a greasy meal is not appealing and you want something healthy and filling. So we came up with a solution!

Stephanie (a.k.a. Fannie) is my older, adventurous sister who has always inspired me to live life to the fullest. Stephanie has backpacked all throughout Europe, biked from Virginia to California, hiked the Appalachian trail, and biked through New Zealand… the list goes on. She is the one we turn to when we have any questions about our cycling tour. Here are 10 questions I thought would be helpful and fun to share.
Long-distance bicycle touring is tough on your body. You spend hours a day cramped up in a position that is hard on your wrists, neck, shoulders, back and legs, so it’s important to spend a little bit of time each day stretching to show your body a little love for all its hard work!
What are sopes? I had the same question for my friend, Maria, who said she was craving them one day while we were working at the St. Regis. Here’s how she explained this Mexican delicacy: fried masa flour cakes topped with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, feta cheese and a special homemade green chili sauce.
Our friend Cherish, who works at The Garden Café at Common Ground, is an amazing baker. She focuses on creating healthy desserts that are either raw, vegan, gluten-free or all of the above. I had to have her over so she could share one of her amazing recipes.
