European Phantom Trek Starts in England

"The day started at the airport when the four trekkers first met after our arival in England. Our first ride was a little shaky because it took some getting used to the weight on the back of our bikes and riding on the LEFT side of the road. Dispite the challenges, we made it to Windsor castle with relative ease and spent a few hours bonding and exploring the ancient structure. After sight seeing and laughing at the guards in the funny hats who seem to not have ankles we strolled into town and ate dinner at a real english pub where we chowed down on some scrumptious pub grub. It was a great first step on our European adventure".-Joni Geller, Teen Trekker.

Welcome Laura!

Hey Teen Trekers!

My name is Laura. I’m from Buffalo, NY and I love my bicycle! My other passions include painting, drawing, swimming, running, photography, music, sewing, chocolate and coffee. I’ve been a lifeguard and taught swim lessons for the past five years. I recently got a degree in Architecture from the University at Buffalo and will be heading to Boston in the fall to start my Masters of Architecture at MIT.

I love to travel; I love the independence and freedom of taking off on my bicycle for a new adventure, and I love all of the new people to meet and new perspectives to be gained from traveling. I studied abroad last summer in Barcelona, Spain and got to explore all of the awesome architecture over there. I was also able to check out Paris, Amsterdam, and got to see Spain win the World Cup in Madrid! This summer I’m excited to explore roads a little closer to home.

We’ve just finished a week of Leadership Training packed full of bike mechanics, camping, laughing, and delicious cooking. I got to meet and hang out with a really awesome group of Leaders. I’m looking forward to two stellar trips that I’ll be leading with Chris this summer-around Lake Ontario and from NY to Montreal. I look forward to meeting all of you Trekers!
