    Protecting our Planet

    Protecting our Planet

    We are joined by Mike Dits. Mike is a corn-fed Indiana Hoosier and adventurer who now lives in Colorado. He is extremely passionate about clean energy and sustainability.

    Mike had his first bike touring experience as a sophomore in college when he spent a summer working with a non-profit organization called Bike and Build. After touring the country helping to build homes for those in need, he knew that a solo bike trip was in his future.

    After graduation in August of 2015, Mike set off for a 4-year solo trip around the world. The theme of his journey was promoting sustainability and renewable energy. He spent his time learning about clean energy and helping install solar water systems for families in Africa.

    After visiting 63 countries and 5 continents, Mike returned home in October of 2019. You can tell how impactful this trip was on him by the enthusiasm in his voice when he recalls the amazing people he met along the way. He says nothing is better than traveling on two wheels to take in the world's beauty while learning about diverse cultures.

    Mike's advice for anyone planning a long-term trip is to put yourself in the proper mindset. His motto for life is simple; look around, smile, and keep your hands open. Don't just look ahead or behind but look all around and be totally present. Smile to bring a positive energy, an energy with respect and humility to everyone that you encounter. Keep your hands open, to receive but also to give.  

    You can reach Mike on his website, Renew Ride, where he blogs about the projects he is working on at RenewRide.com.

    Woman on a Mission

    Woman on a Mission

    We are joined by Anastasia Bouzdine. Anastasia is a 25-year-old woman on a mission to connect with humanity on a bicycle.

    Anastasia is an engineer, working in a male-dominated field and surrounded by men who do many sport challenges. She decided that if the men could do it, so could she. After trying a few short cycling trips, Anastasia made her first solo trip in September of 2020.

    She set off on an exhausting 10-day journey across the Alps with the end goal of taking a little swim in the Mediterranean Sea. Anastasia says that when she started, the trip was all about how far or how fast she could travel in a day. But after a few days, she realized that the trip was more about the experiences and the people she met along the way.

    Every day, the Warmshowers community welcomed and supported her. She was so encouraged by all of her hosts' warm hospitality, some of whom have become lifelong friends. The relationships she made prompted her to become a host herself.

    Anastasia loves cycling through the mountains, so she is planning on crossing the Dolomite Mountains in Italy for her next trip.

    For Anastasia, what started as a sport challenge to prove herself, turned into an extraordinary trip of transformation. In the end, it was the connections she made along the way that made the trip such a fantastic experience.

    You can learn more about Anastasia on her YouTube channel, Anastasia Bouzdine.

    Riding the Wild Life

    Riding the Wild Life

    In this episode, Andrew Lee joins the show to discuss awakening through bike touring. Andrew describes how he felt like he'd had some amazing life experiences that had led him to a spiritual awakening. He decided to have one last adventure and undertake a cycling tour across Canada to consolidate his experiences and inspire others before returning to his community to give back and make a difference in the lives of others.

    Andrew cycled across Canada following the acronym of H.I.L.L, which stands for Hope, Inspiration, Love, and Let Go.

    Andrew created the H.I.L.L acronym while tackling the tough hills of British Columbia. He describes how he thinks that there is something that happens to us when we overcome big challenges, or we take steps to push ourselves into uncomfortable places where you can learn resiliency, which can help us in every aspect of your lives. 

    We learn about Andrew’s experiences with wild camping and the challenge and excitement of trying to find free places to stay.

    Cycling For Personal Growth

    Cycling For Personal Growth

    On the show this week Tahverlee is joined by Jérôme Pilette. Jérôme had suffered from depression for many years, despite attempts to remedy it with a healthier lifestyle. In 2017 he decided to travel from Montreal to Chile by bike to gain perspective and work on himself.

    Jérôme talks about the challenges he faced along the way, the difficult biking conditions, and a particularly intimidating experience while traveling through Mexico. 

    He also talks candidly about depression and how you can let it defeat you or you can find your strength in the difficult moments and carry yourself forward.

    You can reach Jérôme on Facebook where he posts about the projects he is working on at https://www.facebook.com/jerome.pilette

    Transformation Through Hardship

    Transformation Through Hardship

    Tahverlee is joined today by Seth Davidson, a recovering lawyer who has spent his life racing bikes since 1984 and now seeks to be a beacon for truth and introspection. In recent years Seth has concluded that there is a better life available so much so that over the coming years he seeks to spend zero time practicing law and all of his time on his bicycle supporting himself with his writing.

    We talked about the idea of desperation and how often, the thing that connects the

    creators of the greatest works, is a need and having their back against the

    wall. When Seth set out on his 3600-mile bike tour he found that through

    encountering hardship, he rediscovered his creativity and gentleness along with

    meeting incredible people along the way who have changed his outlook on life.

    We talked about how by getting rid of belongings and ‘things’ we can experience a new

    kind of freedom as we become untethered from the emotional bonds that connect

    us to them.

    Seth plans in the next 5 years to be an itinerant minstrel on a bicycle reciter of

    medieval Chaucerian poetry. He has already memorized 4000 of the 17000 words

    Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer in Middle English

    Redeeming Eden with Adam

    Redeeming Eden with Adam

    Adam Lineberry, who has just completed a tour riding from Seattle to key West Florida, joined the show on day 86 of his journey.

    Adam tells his incredible story of being saved by god after being an IV Cocaine and Opiate user then starting his own Rehab center to give his life to other people.

    He had no funds to get the rehab started and needed to get to Tennessee to make it work so he had no choice but to start from scratch using donated equipment and a Walmart bike to ride there! 

    Along the way he raised awareness about addiction and recovery to the people he met. His journey is documented on his YouTube channel ‘Redeeming Eden’.
