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 June 9-10.
Who: Purdue international students and scholars
Where: Meet at Crosswalk Commons Apts , 925 Hilltop Dr., W.L., west of the football stadium.
When: Friday, June 9th, after lunch at 1:30pm is our departure time. We'll plan to return on Saturday, June 10th, 9pm. What to bring: Your bike, helmet, and comfortable clothes for riding. (If you need a bike or helmet please let us know).
Cost: $25 for gas that you turn in by May 29 (we'll travel in vehicles to our riding location). There will also be cost for one night in a hotel room (two people per room), and for lunch and dinner on Saturday. You should expect to pay about $80 for these additional expenses. So the total cost to you is about $105.
Highlights: On Friday we will be hosted by a kind family for an outdoor dinner and lake activities (bring your swimsuit). 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!
