Could there be a better place to bicycle tour than the Canadian San Juan Islands?  Join Len Carr and John Mayer for a five-day cycling trek in Canada. Each day We’ll explore by bike, sometimes taking a ferry to another island. we'll explore hidden coves, sandy beaches, and mossy forests—with wildlife and swimming holes waiting around each bend. At night we cook dinner and camp under the stars. Rides are moderately difficult (12 to 25 miles each day with some hills). Extensive bicycling experience is not necessary, but students should be in good physical condition and comfortable riding on road shoulders. Students must provide their own bicycle; either a road bike or mountain bike is fine.

The cost of this 5-day trip is $375.  The trip is open to graduating 8th graders and all Upper School Students.
