Logan Everts is 17-year-old junior who enjoys weight lifting, fencing and participating in triathlons. He hopes to attend the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and study mechanical engineering. He joined scouting in 2003. His involvement in Boy Scouts began in Hawaii and continued in Colorado and Virginia, where he joined Troop 165 in 2010.
His most memorable scouting experience is the time he completed his first century ride during the summer of 2011. He hadn’t ridden much at that time, the temperature was in the upper 90’s and he felt awful: hot and exhausted. He wanted to quit, but he completed the ride with his last ounce of determination, and with the help of his fellow riders. Completing his first century ride was a milestone that will stick with him for a long time. He knew then that he could accomplish anything he set my mind to; no matter the level of difficulty or the number of bumps along the way. In addition, that experience gave him something that no one could take away from him: his love of cycling.
For his Eagle Scout project, Logan refurbished four cannons and built two benches for the National Park Service.
Cycling is one of the most interesting and intense sports in which Logan has ever participated. In the last three years, he has completed nine century rides. He is a competitive individual, and cycling allows him to test his physical limits and demonstrate his competitive edge. However, cycling also is very relaxing, and it lets him view the country in ways that he could not do while driving. He knows that he will enjoy all the things he likes about cycling by participating in the ESCAA ride.
