MEET THE CREW:
Cameron Russell: After growing up in the heart of the Green Mountains, Cameron inherited a passion for biking from his father. He graduated from UVM in 2007 and began teaching at a small boarding school in the Berkshires. The Mundo Pequeño became his dream after he rode solo from the Oregon coast to Boston to raise money for an organization called Trips for Kids.
Eli Bennet: Eli grew up in an intentional community on the border of Massachusetts and New York State. Before Mundo Pequeño, he cycled 700 miles from New York State to Bar Harbor, Maine, and in 2010 he biked across the US. He says he embarked on his South American journey to discover his place in the world.
Noah McCarter says: “My hope is to use this trip to bring people together and spread awareness around conservation and sustainability issues we encounter all along our journey. I want to share the way people live in relation to nature and the effects that those life styles have around the globe.”
Join the Mundo Pequeño at Skinny Pancake in Burlington on Nov. 19 or on their ride to the Canadian border that morning. For more information or to follow their journey visit mundopequeno.org
