The Permacyclists are a couple traveling around the world via bike to have an adventure, raise awareness about environmental issues, and document grass roots environmental projects around the world. They visited the Rosalie Haus on their way south to Mexico and eventually to South America.
About the permacyclists:
Fall 2009 became our official departure date; Africa became our first destination. We spent 16 unbelievable months cycling through twelve countries before deciding to leave our bikes behind and continue on by public transportation. We are currently en route to Rio de Janeiro, hoping to arrive in time for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June 2012.
On the way we’re making short documentary films about grassroots environmental projects. Are we professional filmmakers? No. But we’re not letting that get to us. We’re also visiting cafes and bookstores to show our movies and talk some about the amazing work being done every day to make a better future for us all.
