Meet Trip Leader Quinn!

Meet Quinn

Hey there, Teen Trekkers! My name is Quinn Ketchum and I’m thrilled to be leading an amazing group of bikers this summer. I come from Pine Island, New York, where I’ve spent most of my life exploring the outdoors. Ever since I was young, I’ve been on mountain and road bikes. It’s always been a passion of mine. There’s something so special about being able to take in all of the beautiful scenery while pedaling through it, and I can’t wait to share that experience with all of you. While I was in college, I had the opportunity to study abroad in London and travel all over Europe. I did it all on a tight budget, which meant I had to get creative with my accommodations. I became very comfortable staying in hostels and even sleeping outdoors. I found that it gave me a deeper appreciation for the natural world and a greater sense of adventure. Aside from biking, I’ve always loved being outdoors in general. Camping, hiking, skiing, and swimming are all activities that I enjoy. I also have a passion for skateboarding and making skate videos. In fact, I am super excited that some of my videos have been featured in a few magazines. After graduating from Ithaca College, where I studied Documentary Studies and Production, I’ve been able to focus on my storytelling layering in my values of respect and integrity through the lens of authenticity and compassion. I believe that everyone has a unique story to tell, and I’m excited to hear yours as we embark on this trekking adventure together.
