Tim Travis has been everything from a bicycle mechanic to a Special Education Teacher with a Masters degree. Cindie Travis worked as a geologist prior to the start of their epic adventures. Tim started riding bicycles in the mid-1970’s with a Campy five-speed bike, wool shorts and one of those funny leather helmets that cyclists wore back then. The bicycle racing movie, Breaking Away, hit the theaters and he quickly fell into racing. He was immersed in racing until he graduated from Indiana University in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. Cindie rode a bike during college and started riding again when she met Tim. They did one of their first tours on their honeymoon and Cindie was hooked on bicycle touring ever since. Tim enjoys spending his days living international bike touring adventures and nights writing about them in his tent. Cindie loves the simplicity and challenge of life on the road.
