Pacific Northwest Trekkers Enjoying Their Last Days of Biking

The Pacific Northwest is usually known for rainy weather, however late June & July is usually mostly sunny. Last year, the Pacific Northwest Trek had "only 4 hours of anything but sun."

One day from civilization and I'm not sure how eager I am to trade a campfire and smores for electricity and a hot shower (as nice as it sounds). It's amazing to be part of a group that, despite not being able to experience a greatly anticipated kayaking session (due to the only 4 hours of anything but sun we've had this whole trip), still managed to have a wonderful day enjoying prime biking weather and savory smores at the end of the day. However, to give a run down, we biked 43 miles with a great tailwind and beautiful views of the mountains we previously climbed. We carefully crafted "artisan" sandwiches at lunch and finished the day off with grilled cheese, unsuccessfully cooked on our raging campfire, but still tasty! The moon was full so some of us stayed up "star tripping" and singing to ukulele around our final dying fire.

Cape Cod Trekkers Explore Brewster Area


There's so much to discover along Cape Cod, both the Cape Cod and New England Shore Trek explore this classic American summer vacation and bicycling destination!

This morning we woke up and decided to take an interesting short cut on a mountain biking trail to get out of Nickerson State park in Brewster, MA, which proved to be harder but more fun on road bikes! Once out of the forest we rode to a delicious diner for breakfast! Almost all of the boys got breakfast burgers while the rest of us got French toast and pancakes! Then we rode to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and explored the Cape Cod Bay in which Nielsen and Austin got stranded on the sand bar. After Austin and Nielsen made the three feet journey back to shore we made an excursion to 7-Eleven for free slurpy day!! Finally we headed back to camp and sat around a roaring fire while munching on smores. We're all going to go to bed early tonight as we have a big day of 30 miles to Provincetown tomorrow!
 Stay tuned
