Going into this media internship I had no idea what to expect. Most of all, I did not expect to have a sense of community and family that I’ve experienced in only the first two weeks here. The members I have lived with are some of the most generous and thoughtful people I’ve met in my life. This past weekend a rider bought a pizza for us to share saying the media team does so much for the riders. We are thanked daily for our little tasks and are made to feel like we are contributing to the big picture, just as much as the bicyclists. It’s amazing to see so many different people put forth their unique skills to contribute in making this trip successful. We have had members cook some amazing meals including cobbler, homemade cinnamon rolls, fajitas and more.
