Dr. Brian Sutton, MD made a multimedia presentation about his cross-country bike ride this past summer at Bike to the Sea’s annual meeting held on Thursday, Nov. 9, 2023.
Sutton, the brother of Bike to the Sea board member Pete Sutton, showed photos, maps, and short video clips of his journey on the Great American Rail Trail starting in Washington State and ending in Washington, D.C.
Sutton left his job as medical director of Baystate Health Urgent Care in western Mass. shortly before embarking on the cross-country trip. His wife followed him across the country in an RV.
About 77 Bike to the Sea members attended the dinner meeting at the Old Tyme Italian Cuisine restaurant in Lynn. Elections were held for new board members. Pat Bibbins replaced Janet Green as president. Tai Lam was elected to the board as secretary. And Linda Sullivan was honored for her years of service on the board.
