About

I'm Tara, your spokes-person. :D

Let me guess. I bet you choose to travel by bike because...

What other way of traveling is so fun and freeing?

How else can you tootle along country roads, taking time to stop and smell the wild garlic or wave hello to friendly locals (who stare, agog at your bulging bicycle)?

How else can you rationalize wolfing down quite so much ice cream? Or second breakfast? Or third breakfast?

Bike touring can be a joyful feast for the senses.

So WHY (I say, hopping atop my soap box) are most cycle tourists fueled by stale bread, rotty bananas, bland cans of soup, and bloated gobs of pasta drowned in barely-flavored jar sauce?

This is the food-equivalent of choosing an air-conditioned bus excursion. Guided by a tired lady droning into a microphone who won't let you get off to pee, much less take a picture. You wouldn't travel like that, so why do you eat like that?

If you're like most cycle tourists I've met during the past decade I've been writing about bike tour cooking, you want to eat better, you just don't know how, and you don't know where to get help.

Maybe you love cooking at home, but you don't know how to bring your kitchen with you on the road.

Maybe you don't know how to cook at all, but you have a sneaking suspicion that if only you could whip up a wicked tasty meal for your partner at the end of a long day in the saddle, they might be more willing to go touring with you.

Maybe you've been cycle touring awhile, but you've run out of ideas of what to eat.

Well, friend, this is where I come in! (I say, vaulting off my soapbox).

It really, truly is possible to eat food along the way that's as wondrous as bike touring itself. That's what I did during my two years of pedaling slowly across multiple continents, and that's what I'll teach you how to do, too.

No matter where you're at in your bike tour cooking journey, you've found the right place.

Welcome to Bike. Camp. Cook.
