Hunter Ellis

Hunter grew up among apple trees and grapevines in Sonoma County, California. From a young age, he’s been lucky enough to travel to far-flung corners of the world with his father, who owns and operates a one-man ecotourism company. Hunter fell in love with bikes while living carless for 5 years in Portland, Oregon, studying Classics and commuting by bicycle. This was just the beginning of a long-lasting affair that has come to include restoring, building and touring by bike.
