Interview With The Hungry Cyclist: Pedalling The Americas In Search Of The Perfect Meal


Tom Kevill-Davies (aka The Hungry Cyclist) sold his car, quit his job, and set off on a 2.5 year journey by bike through North and South America in search of the perfect meal.

Along the way, The Hungry Cyclist covered more than 15,000 miles and not only found the perfect meal, but found hundreds of them!

From turkey meals in the Dakotas, freshly caught salmon in the Pacific Northwest, and tacos in Mexico, The Hungry Cyclist ate his way, one meal at a time, from the shores of New York City to the beaches of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

The Hungry Cyclist: Pedalling The Americas In Search Of The Perfect Meal is Tom Kevill-Davis first book and, I might add, an excellent read. If you like to bike… and you like to eat… then this is one book you’ve got to taste for yourself.

After finishing the book just a few short weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of speaking with The Hungry Cyclist himself and asking him a little bit about his gastronomic cycling Adventure through the Americas.
