Welcome to Soulcycler, home of Rick Gunn, writer, photographer, speaker, and adventurer.
Greetings from South Lake Tahoe, California! Fall-winter 2012 has brought continued work on an array of exciting projects, including a recent TEDx Youth Talk for students in Danville California, and another upcoming TEDx talk in South Lake Tahoe to be arranged in early 2013.
Besides scheduling presentations for dates in 2013, work continues on “Soulcycler” the book, as well as some final editing work with Videographer Jobe Pilgrim on “Soulcycler” the adventure film short!
In addition to that adventure film, Jobe and I are putting together two other videos to promote my talks and shows. The first will become a promotional CD (that you may request) describing my show. The second video will be used for a Kickstarter.com project that will give a well needed boost to the creation of my book.
With the Completion of the book and video, 2013 will bring a new cycling project with fellow world cyclist Mohammad Tajeran of Mashad, Iran. “The Iran-America Pedals for Peace Children’s Art Project.” The details of this project to be announced in the beginning of the year.
So get ready for “Soulcycler” to come to a city near you! Can’t wait!
Peace and pedals,

Whether reporting from an orphanage in Nepal, volunteering in an AIDS Hospice in Thailand, Covering Bomb extraction and mine victim rehabilitation in Laos and Vietnam, to simply planting trees in Borneo, “Soulcycler” delivers a first hand account the realization of a dream, the current state of the planet, and what it means to care.
Heres what one viewer wrote about, “Soulcycler”:
“What an honor it was to attend Rick Gunn’s presentation of his 26,000 mile bicycle journey at the Brewery Arts Center Thursday.
The evening was emotionally filled with stories and photographs of his three year journey that simply took your breath away. Images of love, hate, poverty and oppression left one feeling like there was so much more to life than we even know. Gunn is truly a remarkable human being, full of passion for what he believes in. I can only hope we could all share this passion for life.
I left feeling the desire to care more, do more, and yet at the same time, need and want so much less.
Thank you Rick for a whole new insight.”
