Three NMU students plan to circumnavigate Lake Superior by bike in May to record and share the stories of its people, the places they love and the threat that climate change poses. Throughout the 1,400 mile journey, they will "make a conscious effort to utilize sustainable practices with our food, equipment and energy use. We want to gain an understanding of the impact that Lake Superior has on its surrounding communities while creating a platform of education about ways to keep Lake Superior pristine." The riders are Dylan Gonda, Olivia Walcott and Ryan Watling. For more information, visit their Facebook page here
