Girl Scout Troop 7314 is taking on a 200-mile, eight-day bike ride across the Navajo Nation – the Tour de Sih Hasin. The strenuous mental and physical preparation for the tour helps the troop members, ranging from 6 to 15 years old, build confidence, courage and character – embodying the Girl Scout mission.
Thanks to a generous donation from Project Bike Love, an organization that donates bikes to women and girls, the troop has received 20 brand new bikes for their journey, in addition to jerseys, helmets, cycling shoes and several bike tools.
The tour is scheduled July 8-15.
