ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Just signed up for June 6 ride. Recumbents available for rent? Otherwise, i was planning on bringing my own bike.

Doris Miller Mar 14, 2015 at 10:18 AM

FYI - I had a good conversation with Pam in St. Charles, letting me know that the rental bikes have racks on the back to which you can attach a bag (with bungees) or panniers. Thanks Pam - over and above to hear from you.

I may bring my own bike at that cost.

Doris Miller Mar 09, 2015 at 11:31 AM

Hi Tim,
The information on the site indicates the rental is $100 (but you might double check) and that you have to provide your own bike helmet.

Does anyone know how much the bike rental fees are for the KATY Trail ride?

Doris Miller Mar 07, 2015 at 04:27 PM

I am on the May trip and plan to rent a bike. Do the bikes come with panniers or should I bring my own??? I would rather not bike with a backpack but will if I have to. I also want to limit my baggage to a carryon for the flight to St. Louis. Thanks for your help.

OOPS ... we are on the June 6 trip, not a Sep trip.

Timothy Foley Feb 26, 2015 at 09:48 AM

My wife and I are taking the Sep 6, 2015, trip. We are driving from North Carolina so we thought we would use the rental bikes available through the program. Has anyone out there used the rental bikes? If so, can you tell me about them ... what kind/style of bike, their general condition, etc.?
