Cross-Country Trip Ends in Del Mar


New Englanders Clint Valentine, left, and Paul Dorr, who work together on a schooner off the coast of Maine, have just completed a cross-country bicycling trip, all the way to San Diego. Raising roughly $5,000 for breast cancer along the way, the two men, known as Team Bowditch, ended their expedition in Del Mar. Dorr, 48, said biking through one of the coldest winters on record made the trip itself the most memorable part: “It really is the journey and not the destination,” he said. “So much happened during the time we left to get here that when we finally put our front wheels in the Pacific Ocean, it was like, hmm, where’s the band?”

About Clint Valentine

Clint is currently enrolled in two undergraduate degrees in Biology & Environmental Science at Northeastern University. He enjoys pursuits of endurance and distance which have included summiting many peaks in New England during winter alpine ascents, sailing the Atlantic in a vintage gaff-rigged schooner, rock climbing in five states including Oregon, and cycling 5,000 miles across North America. He has goals of pushing the envelope of his limits and combining his many outdoors interests into one big trip. He has a passion for photography and hopes to one day produce a documentary for a round-the-world tour.
