Favourite memory of the Award:
My favorite memory was biking along the coastline of Eleuthera, we were biking along a hill just above the beach. There was no one in sight and it was just me and my group ready to explore the island. My favorite memory was every time we stopped to explore the island's beaches. We biked through a variety of different sceneries that I had never seen before.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
My biggest challenge was trying to remain positive and avoid conflict with my group members. It was difficult when we had to keep stopping because a group member was falling too far behind or needed to stop and take a break. We overcame this by going at a slower pace and having the slowest biker lead the way. It was not ideal biking at this speed but it preventing us from continuously stopping and saving time in the meantime.

Tell us the story behind your photo:
We had been biking down a straight road for about 2 hours and thought that we had missed the turning when we finally decided to stop and try and figure out where we were, two group members decided to take the path to the right and try and gain an understanding of where we were. When we heard screaming we assumed something was wrong but as the noise got closer it ended up being cries of joy. It turned out we had stopped right outside the path to the beach where we would be camping for the night. All of our faces lit up as we ran to the beach, we had even beaten the supervisors to the campsite! This photo shows the beautiful sunset and stars that we witnessed our first-night camping.
