Welcome New Leader and Former Trekker - JONAH
Greetings Trekkers! My name’s Jonah, and I hail from Amesbury, a small town 30 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts. I think cycling is the best way to see the world! You go slow enough to notice details you would miss in a car, and get an incredible sense of satisfaction watching the miles ticking up on your odometer. I have biked in Alaska, California, Ireland, and all over the Pioneer Valley, where I went to college at UMass Amherst. When I was 15, I did my first bike tour from New York City to Montreal with Teen Treks. Since then, I have spent my free time outdoors hiking, skiing, SCUBA diving, and of course bicycling! I have worked as a ski instructor, a camp counselor and a peer tutor at school, and I’m super excited to get back on the road this summer before I start graduate school at Columbia University in the fall.
If you’ve never been on a bike tour, you’re in for some of the funnest, most memorable weeks of your life. If you’re coming back for another trip, I can’t wait to hear your stories!
