Cellist, singer-songwriter and political activist Ben Sole spent a lot of time on whirlwind tours, flying over and driving through America’s towns and cities. he was becoming burnt out, and his health was suffering. So he bough an Xtracycle cargo bike, strapped his cello to it and set off on a five-year, 5,000-mile journey. His Ditch the Van tour brings hardships, like broken wheels, tornadoes, unfriendly motorists, and takes twice as long as for half the money as a traditional tour. But it also offers meaningful experiences and a more human pace of life in a frantic world, allowing Sollee time to ponder the big questions such as: What is worth sacrificing? And What story is he trying to tell?
