Age By Design: Cycling Scandinavia with Anna Carr at the YWCA MDI

September 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Anna began cycling in the 1990s as a way to get exercise, cycling around Northeast Harbor and on the carriage roads.  Beginning in 2000 Anna accepted the challenge of participating in the Trek Across Maine, a 3 day, 180 mile bike ride, to raise money for the American Lung Association.  With training Anna completed the ride and enjoyed it so much she participated for the next 7 years.  

In 2013 Anna met George Mack who introduced her to bicycle touring.  Her first tour was an 8 day tour around the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec.  After retirement Anna and George planned the ultimate cycling experience.  They spent 4 months cycling through Scandinavia.  They began in Oslo cycled up the coast of Norway to Nordkapp, returned South through Finnish Lapland and into Swedish Lapland.  They cycled south in Sweden to Gothenburg where they returned home.

Anna has just returned from a 6 week tour of Newfoundland and Labrador.
