12 years ago, Chris Bangs traded in his car for a bicycle for better access to mountains and trails for his adventures. To date, Chris has ridden his bicycle over 20,000 miles to go rock climbing, ice climbing and skiing on the best routes, in the best locations in North America. Yosemite, the Canadian Rockies, the Bugaboos, the Wind Rivers, the Grand Tetons, Mount Rainier and all over Montana, to name a few of his destinations. Chris says, “This has become my passion. I got hooked on the pure adventure of a human powered expedition. I fell in love with living on the road for months at a time and random encounters with other people. My adventures taught me a lot about myself and the world around me. I learned the hard way about eating the right foods and living a clean lifestyle.”
Along his journey, Chris has inspired others to join his adventures and has created Human-Powered Mountaineers, Inc. which specializes in self-supported expeditions. Through Human-Powered Mountaineers, Inc. Chris hopes to raise awareness for organic foods as an athlete, and help education people about proper nutrition and the benefits of eating plant-based, while experiencing some of the most beautiful places in the country.

What keeps Chris fueled? “I use the Amazing Meal both for recovery from my daily workout routines and powering up during the intense binge style training that I put myself through to get ready for an upcoming expedition. I also use the Amazing Meal extensively once I’m on expedition, because of how easy it is to get all the protein and greens I need on a daily basis. And the Amazing Meal travels very well, mixes easily with just plain water, and it tastes great.”
