Every semester the Center for Sustainability Education hosts a 7-mile (each way) bike ride to the Dickinson College Organic Farm in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania. The event is designed to build community, improve rider skills and safety, and introduce students to the Dickinson Farm. Pre-registration is requested for this free, fun, adventure. Ride groups based on ability are organized with experienced ride leaders for each group. Past events have had 30 to over 100 Dickinson student, faculty, staff, alumni and family participants.
Each participant brings a dish to share, and the food is transported to the farm by van. Once at the farm participants have shared a meal, played games, toured the farm, hosted a bonfire, played music, and enjoyed time outdoors.
The Center for Sustainability Education is always looking for co-sponsors, ride leaders, and new particpants in this Dickinson tradition. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Spring 2015 Date: Saturday, April 18th
An email will be sent out to all people on the biking listserve, and posters will go up on campus closer to the date of the event.
