Yo, yo, yo! (this is when you answer, “What’s up!”). Today we had some big border crossings: Switzerland to France, Belgium to France, and into California. For many other trips, those big crossings are coming up (Looking at you, VM and CQ)! Remember all those backcountry folks? They’re also pouring out of the woods, and the pictures are coming right behind them. Across the board our groups are soaking up the best of their regions with service, surfing, and all-around smiles.
Today was the final morning for MCJ1. The kids were all smiles as they said their goodbyes. Never fear- we’ve got more MCJ trips this summer to look forward to!
CI is enjoying more time Cape side with a pleasant ride through Wellfleet. With, of course, plenty of time to soak up those views.
The Kolorado Kids are continuing to crush the local outdoors scene! Today, they rafted on the Poudre (pronounced, we kid you not, “pooder…”) River. Word is it was “super duper”!
In Puerto Rico, our group spent the day doing service at the Vieques Wildlife Refuge’s greenhouses. They also had the opportunity to see a baby alligator at the refuge! After service, they headed to gorgeous Red Beach. The same Red Beach Simón Bolívar once stood on (celebrity status)!
Their hard work has sure paid off… look at those essays! To celebrate their efforts, the crew is going out to eat for their final night together. We here in Brunswick are proud of you, MCCE1!
The DEXsters have finished their backcountry explorations and are now settling into Baxter State Park. They’re having a great time (sans service, so sans pictures today) and have their eyes on Katahdin! Cross your fingers for good weather!
VM was back on the bikes today, and continued up through Vermont. Montréal isn’t far now!
Today’s a travel day down in Costa Rica! They’re heading to their sweet ecolodge, deep in the Costa Rican rainforest. We’re talking bigger plants and more waterfalls, folks! Stay tuned – we’ll get the pictures when they emerge from the jungle on Sunday!
CMCA is officially in the backcountry and unable to send us pictures. It’s their turn in Yosemite- what a lucky bunch!
CMCB is out of the backcountry, and into the van they go! They will be rewarded after van time, as they’re heading to the iconic Cali coast.
CQA departed Dexter and, wait for it… glided into Greenville. They hammered those hills today, and they (and their legs) are looking forward to resting – on the river – tomorrow!
CQ Bravo continued their ride north up to Dexter. Slightly shorter ride than yesterday, so needless to say they crushed it. What else is new?
Out of Wolf Creek and into Augusta they go! Today was one of our Montanans’ longer riding days, and well worth it with some stellar views (and a birthday along the way)!
NWXA is out of the backcountry and they’re spending the day rafting. Who had more fun rafting, CRM or NWXA? We’re gonna say it’s a strong tie!
NWXB hiked out of the back country today and is transiting to the San Juan Islands. Water time, ocean views, and service await!
Today was the first full day in Cali for PCA. Naturally, they went surfing! What a rejuvenating way to enjoy the Pacific Coast.
The PC Bravos had a solid ride and crossed into Cali today. Sure looks familiar does it? We’ll spare you our Cali jokes.
These wee explorers had quite the day! They had their longest hike into the Glen Coe area today, and the Braveheart views did not disappoint. Even after a long hike, they relayed their excitement for tomorrow’s explorations!
Today AX Alpha began their TMB trek with some gorgeous weather and packs loaded with the delicacies of Switzerland. Highlights include: crossing a country border, amazing views, and some uncharacteristic statues.
AXB was able to send us some PHENOMENAL pictures from the alps, across the ocean, to our Brunswick office. They’re into the Chamonix valley and continuing to make us incredibly jealous. They’ve been up to all good things, with views of the Aiguille de Bionassy and its glacier.
Bonjour! Today, ECCA crossed into France and arrived safely in Le Quesnoy, a small town known for its shoemakers. Don’t miss Belgium too much just yet; they’ll bike through again tomorrow!
After eating all of the waffles in Bruge, ECCB climbed back on those bikes and pedaled to their next destination. They’re still enjoying one more evening in Belgium – before dipping into France and then returning to Belgium for a night. La France demain!
ACC1 enjoyed a rest day from the bikes, but not a rest day in the sports world. Today was the inaugural Bandanna Buddy Ping Pong Tournament of 2017. Word is Freddy and Anna have been training more for this tournament than biking cross country.
ACC2 enjoyed a flat ride (with some rollers) to LaGrange. Tomorrow’s their turn for a rest day… and perhaps a continuation of the ping pong championship?
