We had just finished our first week as a full collective; a new group of ScienceTrek students, excited for the unknown and eager to take on the first group bike ride out to Crickle Creek! The weather couldn’t have been much more perfect on a sunny September day, travelling along the River Valley, seeing the leaves change colour before our own eyes and illuminate the backdrop. Sound of pedal strokes, laughter and the trail of our class in their brand-new fluorescent pack covers were easy to spot. Although the trip went a little differently than as planned, it turned out to be a great day, carved out by a new journey for us to share together.
Take the reader of your blog post alongside you on our first trip out to Crickle Creek. What thoughts, feelings and anticipations did you experience before embarking on our 10 km trip as a group of 29 riders? How did you initially react to the roadblock we experienced as we left Montgomery Place? Ultimately, share with the reader your overall journey from start to finish; including the new route, trivia/mini-golf at Crickle Creek and trip back. After undergoing our first week together (and first 20km round-trip via bike), we hope the experiences this far have helped you begin to form new friendships and allowed you to see fellow Trekkers that you can rely on.
Please have your blog completed in a Google Doc form by Wednesday, September 23rd.
