Three environmentally conscious Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA students took up a unique challenge for their gap year, cycling 4,050 kilometers across seven European countries last spring, meeting with local people and farmers along the journey. The trio—Odin, Rodrigue, and Sinclair—had to deal with various pandemic-related contingencies from late delivery of their bikes to closed borders, and ultimately pushing the start of their trip back to June 1, 2021.
The first leg of their trip took them from Grenoble to Switzerland, and then around the Adriatic Sea to Albania. The loop took them through Italy and, finally, back to France on August 7. Now back at school, the three cyclists are in their third year.
