Kevin and Skye's Northern Tier Bike Ride is Complete!

As a team, each one of us strives to live a life of purpose. That doesn’t look the same for everyone, but we all do our best to surround ourselves with community, live generously and play hard. This summer, our founding Wealth Manager, Kevin, is walking that talk. For years, his bucket list has included one particular adventure: riding a bicycle from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. On June 10, he dipped his back tire in the Pacific Ocean near Anacortes, WA and set off with his 12-year-old daughter, Skye, joining him on a tandem bike. They’ll work hard (really hard), meet tons of new friends and accomplish something remarkable. Follow along as they make their way across the country, through rain and shine, across mountains and prairies!

They have completed their summer long journey, arriving at Bar Harbor on 8/19/2019!!
