Recent George Stevens graduate Bella Cimeno will give a presentation at the Blue Hill Public Library on Friday January 12th at 5:00 PM about her a solo bicycling trip across the United States. She completed this impressive undertaking just two months ago.

Bella’s completely self-supported solo cycling journey across the United States began on August 23 in Astoria, Oregon. She followed the Trans America trail, a cycling route that crosses the nation through small towns over back roads highlighting rural America. Bella says, “I set out to see the country I live in, challenge myself, and ultimately learn that goodness exists everywhere.” She was fundraising for The Maine Women’s fund with a goal to raise a dollar for each mile pedaled. Her trip ended at the coast of Virginia.

The presentation is sponsored by the library, and is free and open to everyone. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
