Mitch and Andrea, better known as the Farm Cyclers, are ready to tour the United States by bicycle so they can learn the skills needed to become helpful stewards to the planet and its people. They hope to share their journey with you!

Hello, and thanks for checking out our story! We are Mitch and Andrea, better known as the Farm Cyclers. We are American travelers preparing to bicycle around the United States in hopes of learning a variety of agricultural, natural building, and community support skills in order to become better stewards to the planet and its people.

We will be stopping at farms, community gardens, parks, and anywhere else we can to volunteer and learn from the people who best know these places and how to care for them. We are excited for the opportunity to learn new skills, but ultimately, one of our most important goals for this trip is to share everything we learn with anyone who is interested in earth stewardship, sustainability, gardening, farming, or just exploring the beautiful lands of the United States!

We are packed and ready for our departure in March. Our panniers are packed with gear and we have prepared physically and mentally for the journey. However, the one thing that we don't have is all of the supplies we need to share the journey with you! We have a wonderful DSLR camera (Canon Rebel T3i) with a mounted microphone that's ready to shoot 1080p HD videos of everything we learn and do, but we don't yet have the means to edit and upload the videos. That's where you come in!

We are hoping to purchase a small laptop that can function as our portable video editing studio, as well as start a website for our adventure. We are looking to purchase an ASUS Zenbook 2-in-1 PC for our basic video editing needs. We would also like to build a comprehensive website for our journey, so that all of our friends and family can accompany us online! Any extra money we raise beyond the costs of these needs will go into our food/supply fund, or if there's enough leftover, we could potentially purchase bicycle insurance and/or traveler's insurance in case of emergencies.

Will you help us share our journey by contributing to our campaign? Any amount will help, and we can't wait to show you everything we see and do while we learn and explore across the country! We are grateful to have the time and ability to take on this adventure, and we are so grateful for every donation that helps us put our adventure online for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you for contributing, and we hope you share our campaign with others who may be interested in following our journey!
