This Month in Boys' Life Magazine Official publication of the BSA

Biking across America

The July 2015 issue of Boy's Life magazine features an amazing article about a group of Eagle Scouts that rode their bikes all the way across America. Lots of great photos and a very exciting trip - 3800 miles over 64 days! Other features include a very interesting piece on some of the most intriguing items held at the Smithsonian along with ideas for better tasting creative camp cooking. There is also a fun project that can be built with recycled household items. Only in the Boy Scout edition is an article on how to prepare for a canoe trip and also information on dangerous plants. The Cub Scout edition has fun photos and information on a visit to the Statue of Liberty.
