Bicycle Trip Talk Set in SW Harbor

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Claremont Hotel will be hosting a lecture on Thursday, July 8, at 8 p.m.

The lecture is titled “Where the Hounds Don’t Cry: A Bicycle Trip Across Asia and Europe.”

On April 15, 2009, Levi Bridges and college friend Ellery Althaus embarked on a bicycle tour across Asia and Europe. From the Pacific Ocean, their journey brought them across the wilds of Siberia, into Eastern Europe, and finally, left them battling winter as they pushed onward to the Atlantic coast of Portugal, their final destination.

On July 8, Bridges will recount highlights of the trip.

The talk is free and open to the public.
