What the heck are these guys doing?
Matthew, Weston and Nathan are first year medical students with a passion for community health and biking. Along with Daphne, a first year Veterinary student, the 4 companions will embark on a five-week trip through 1,000 miles of rural Oregon wonder. Along the way they will be working in conjunction with the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians to facilitate community discussions on improving local healthcare options. See our photo album

Home from Canada
Daphne and I just finished our Canadian pre-tour. We spent an amazing couple of weeks riding up the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia and down the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Looking back at our pictures the theme was definitely B.C. ferries, gravel beaches and night time rain showers.
It was a great opportunity to get our systems down before we start the five week Oregon tour. We were really excited that despite the rain showers every night we stayed dry and warm. We definitely took too much stuff, and it will be nice to know what to pare down to make sure we're running as light as possible for the big hills of the Cascades.
