On Sunday, May 20, 2012, “Team MarFac” from the Marine Facility at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, California, completed the Strawberry Fields Forever Bike Ride, an annual bicycle ride sponsored by Cyclists for Cultural Exchange.

Team MarFac cyclists rode either the 100-kilometer route with 4,400 feet of climbing or the 100-mile route with 8,275 feet of climbing! Everyone finished in good spirits with no major mechanical problems (bikes or bodies).

It’s good to know that your coworkers at MarFac—who are responsible for taking you, your equipment, and your science into the field—are no couch potatoes!
