The Hungry Cyclist by Tom Kevill-Davies We first heard about the Hungry Cyclist when he stopped over in the Napa valley several years back. Imagine our delight to one day hear that Tom had written a book about his epic journeys on the bike in the America’s. Tom quit his job, left his girlfriend and the comfortable life in England to hop on the back of a British touring bicycle and peddle all the way from New York City to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil – (the long way), i.e. he first biked across Canada and the USA before he headed south and then biked across the wide point of South America before heading south.
This wasn’t just a long bike trip, rather Tom was always on the lookout for culinary delights and gastronomic adventures. You will see some of his favorite recipes scattered throughout the book. This ride took two years to complete and makes for an intriguing travel memoir.
