I had a couple of friends visit me yesterday at the bike shop. I hadn’t seen Alan Winslow or Morrigan McCarthy since they left on their year-long bicycle tour to document, through photography and audio, rural Americans’ often overlooked efforts at sustainability, and the environment. Doing the 11,000 mile trip by bicycle broke down the social barriers people often have talking to strangers. Their subjects open up in a way that most journalists only dream of. I haven’t heard/seen most of their footage, yet, but I’m expecting it will add much texture to the public discourse on Americans’ views on the environment.

These guys are the real deal: artists and adventurers.
