Hikers are dropping their trail mix and energy bars for a more classic treat—FRUITCAKE! Quickly becoming the food of choice for those engaged in activities like backpacking, canoeing, canyoning, caving, climbing, hiking, hill walking, hunting, kayaking, and rafting, fruitcake is now seen as fuel!
Fruitcake As Fuel
PESH is back! After being forced to take a two-year hiatus due to the global pandemic, PESH has returned to Oaxaca, Mexico to explore one of the deepest cave systems in the world—the Sistema Huautla. Sponsored by Collin Street Bakery, PESH explorers hope to go farther into the caves than ever.
Exploring the entire planet might be impossible but, scientists and researchers keep trying! For several years, a group called PESH has dedicated itself to exploring one of the greatest cave systems in the world. The success secret: fruitcake!
Every year, Bob Kingman and his group of cycling buddies embark on a harrowing tradition: a 100-mile bike race in three-digit heat. We’d call them a couple of tough cookies, but they are actually Fruitcakes. Get to the full story in our blog.

Tim Hoime is one smart cookie. He's basically a fountain of knowledge when it comes to hiking and camping. It's this knowledge which he put to the test on one of his most extreme hikes ever: the Rim to Rim Hike through the Grand Canyon. We caught up with Tim shortly after he completed his hike in May of 2018 to hear all about his amazing adventure and learn from his wild stories.
We sat down with Dan Hurd, one of the most inspirational humans we’ve ever met and the founder of the “One Pedal at a Time” movement - an organization created to connect people through the sport of cycling while starting a discussion about the importance of mental health. Check out our interview!
