Cycling Through Vietnam, One Womans Story

Written by Boston Biker on Jun 16

Join Barb Levitov as she recounts her experiences cycling through Vietnam with REI Adventures.

Come hear first-hand from one participant of a recent Biking in Vietnam trip. Why Vietnam? Why a Bike Trip? Why REI? Why not! Barbara Levitov relays her memorable trip through stories and pictures from Boston to Vietnam, from the daily commute through the “Big Dig”
to the happy hellos from young children in the school yards, from Prius’ and SUVs to bikes, mopeds and water buffalo, from wooden 3-deckers to shelters on stilts and floating villages. Halfway around the world, Barbara encounters comforts, challenges, surprises, tasty food, unique lifestyles, and new friends.

This presentation is FREE and open to all REI Members and Customers. However, space will be limited, so contact REI Boston Customer Service at 617-236-0746 to reserve your spot today.

Thursday, June 19
7:00 – 8:30 pm
