A family affair

Patrick Bauer, 16, of Summit, N.J. is also an avid cyclist like his uncle Lt. Colonel Dolan. He is currently on a month-long bike trip with Overland Tours. He is biking from Paris to Nice, France with 11 other students from across the United States.

Patrick will camp along the journey while biking an average of 45 miles a day in the French countryside. Upon completion of his trip in the seaside city of Nice, he will fly to Paris where he will meet up with his mother – Mary Ann Bauer, Kathleen Dolan of Tryon (grandmother), Colleen Dolan (aunt) and her daughter, Meghan Magin (cousin), of Columbus. They will celebrate Meghan’s graduation from UNC-Charlotte and Patrick’s month-long bike journey. After Paris, Meghan and her grandmother will continue on to Ireland where they will spend a week with family in Dublin and Tipperary.
