Bay Area bicycle tour

(This letter was originally addressed “Dear ski swap.”)Dear Editor:I am writing this letter to all you who gave the chance to go in the Bay Area bicycle tour trip on scholarship. This was the best trip I have had in my life! My trip began in Glenwood Springs, where we took the train to Davis, Calif. Being on the train was really fun. I met a lot of friends – I never thought that they were going to be friendly and kind. The weather was beautiful, and so was the city. We started to ride from Davis to Vallejo, where we were going to take the ferry to San Francisco. As we were riding, we were observing the beauty of the area. It was the perfect day to be outside riding our bikes. The fields were covered of green grass and pretty flowers. When we arrived at Vallejo, we took the ferry to San Francisco. We were on the ferry for almost 45 minutes. When we were in San Francisco, we went to Chinatown to eat the dinner. We also walked around with our teachers. The first day was hard, but it was worth it. The days we were on the trip were really enjoyable. I learned a lot with my teacher and also with my partners. This trip was not only riding bikes – it helped me learn how to take good decisions and how to believe in myself. I am really thankful with all you who gave me the chance to realize my dream.
