Bike Ride/Tour

The next SLCF International Bike Ride/Tour will be along the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail near South Bend, Indiana.  This will be an overnight trip, from May 31 - June 1.


Who: Purdue international students and scholars


Where: Meet at Crosswalk Commons Apts , 925 Hilltop Dr., W.L., west of the football stadium.


When: Friday, May 31, at 6:30pm is our departure time.  We'll plan to return on Saturday, June 1, 9pm. 


What to bring: Your bike, helmet, and comfortable clothes for riding. (If you need a bike or helmet please let us know).


Cost: $40 that you turn in by May 24 (we'll travel in vehicles to our riding location).  This $40 covers gas for transportation to the ride location, rental fee for trailer for transporting bikes, and lunch with the Amish community on Saturday. 


Personal expense: There will also be cost for one night in a hotel room (two people per room), and for dinner on Saturday.  You should expect to pay about $80 for these additional expenses.  


Highlights: During our bike ride on Saturday we'll be passing through Amish country.  We will stop along the way and talk to an Amish school teacher explain about the Amish way of life.


For those who are uncomfortable with riding long distances, there will be opportunities for evening practice rides a week prior to the event.


Riders should have basic riding skills and there will be some small hills.


This will be a good opportunity to meet new people, see new places, and get some exercise! 


We hope to see you on the Bike Ride!
