From September 1997 to June 1998, a team of cyclists circled the Mediterranean, visiting cultural sites and schools, meeting local people, and writing reports of their visits. In June, the team visited France and Spain before concluding their nine-month journey in Gibraltar. Click on a date to view the complete report submitted for that day. The towns and cities the team visited and a brief list of key topics covered in the report are shown for each date. Dates are listed in the form MM/DD/YY. Note: We are continuing to write reports for our visits in June. Please return to this page in the coming weeks for links to new dispatches!
