Most people know Chef Chris Cosentino from watching the Food Network. A judge on Top Chef, and a star on a long list of other shows on the network, Cosentino has become a household name among foodies. What fans of his cooking might not know, is that he absolutely loves cycling in all its many forms: Road, Mountain, commuting… he does it all. And he does it with a joy that is infectious.
He’s so in love with bikes that he worked with his longtime friend and custom framebuilder, Jeremy Sycip to build a trio of gorgeous titanium bikes: Road, Gravel, and Mountain.
Cosentino has also applied his talents to serving underfed children in America through the No Kid Hungry program. He is a powerful advocate for this vital program and is passionately working to ensure that all kids can start the day with a nutritious breakfast.
After riding with Chris at CampoVelo, a weekend-long charity ride event in Napa Valley to raise funds for No Kid Hungry, we talked with him about where his passion for cycling comes from and to learn more about how he’s combined two of the biggest passions in his life: Food and Cycling.
