There was some great city exploration happening today! In the northeast, CI explored Boston and further south CSA headed into San Juan. Furthermore, the culturally rich cities of Paris and Montreal were visited by our bike crews. Outside city lines, our groups were immersed in forests and mountains alike, played by the ocean, and biked across state (and country!) borders. A whole bunch of pictures came in today (service abound for most!), so check it out!
CI is soaking up the last of their time together by exploring Boston. Tonight they’ll enjoy a team meal in the city!
It’s the first full day for NEMC, and they’re wasting no time launching into trip life. Today they climbed on a ropes course in New Hampshire. Tomorrow, it’s mountain time!
CSA is heading from Vieques back to the mainland, and will spend their last day together exploring San Juan.
A new day, and a new place to explore! MCP spent the morning at the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden. This afternoon they launched into a photo workshop. They’re on the way to becoming professionals!
DEX has really gotten to know Baxter State Park! From their AT hiking and Katahdin views to kayaking, they’ve done it all! Tonight they’re island camping before transit tomorrow.
VM enjoyed a full day in Montréal, and their last day together. They’ll have their final dinner in the city tonight before the drive home to the good ol’ U-S-of-A.
We promised rain forest pictures, and we’ve got them for you! These pictures are from the past few days which included service, exploring, Spanish immersion, and waterfalls (obviously). A few more days left in paradise!
Since getting out of the back country, CMCA wasted no time getting to the coast! They spent the morning surfing in the Pacific, and will camp near the beach.
Guess who else is catching some waves? That’s right, CMCB! The question remains…who caught more waves?
CQA is well into their Canadian tour, and spent the day biking in a river valley. Today was more of a leisurely bike ride and tomorrow they’ll be in Québec City!
CQB is making their way across the border today. This is the moment they’ve all been waiting for!
MSA spent the day helping out at the Blackfeet Indian reservation. They’re helping clean up a site that was the location of a powwow last evening, one of the many ceremonies happening all over Montana this season. They’re super excited to be able to jump in and learn while helping out!
It’s day two of the back country explorations in the North Cascades. The won’t be able to send us pictures for a while, but our patience will be well rewarded.
These NWXers are enjoying a rest day in Anacortes, a port town near the Puget sound. They’re prepping for the next backcountry portion, and stretching their legs in the beautiful park.
It’s back on those bikes with a 60 mile ride through the “Avenue of the Giants”, a long ride through the redwoods.
Today was PCB’s turn for service in Eureka with the nonprofit Food for People. They enjoyed their rest day giving back to the community and spending time away from the saddle.
Our trusty highland explorers reached the top of Ben Nevis, and were surrounded by green as far as the eye can see. Smiles abound in the Nevis range!
AXA trekked 20 km today to the hamlet of Les Chapieux. During their hike they passed by Notre-Dame de la Gorge, a popular pilgrimage chapel. Out of service – expect pictures soon!
AXB had a big day today with a strenuous hike and some of the best views of Mont Blanc. If you don’t believe us, check out these pictures! Tomorrow they have a rest day and we expect a full report of where the best pizza and gelato are.
Breaking news: ECCA has two rest days in a row! Today they explored Paris, getting some quintessential Eiffel tower views and walks by the Seine.
Today it was a 100+ km ride for ECCB to Bar-le-duc where they’ll camp for tonight and prep for some well-deserved rest days.
Our first ACC crew had just under a “century” ride (they did 99 miles, but who’s counting?) , and quite an exciting one at that- they’re in Mississippi! It’s been 12 days, and they’re now on their fourth state.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: ACC1 did loops around the church in order to hit 100 miles. More like ACC-amazing, amiright?
ACC2: 2nd in the name, but not in our hearts. This crew is continuing to cruise through Alabama, enjoying wonderful and generous meals from their hosts!
