What a delightful, healthy week and such a reasonable price. The biking and all of the leaders/guides were wonderful. And we participants outdid ourselves in terms of social cohesion. Within a couple of days we were talking, laughing and carrying on as tho we were at a class reunion ~~~ simply a fun time!!

This was my first trip with Road Scholars and I loved it! I took my new road bike and enjoyed the quiet paved roads - and the crushed limestone trail. The participants were fun and interesting. Walking in the bog and the Kovac Planetarium were highlights of the trip. Thank you to the staff of Trees for Tomorrow and all of the participants for a fun adventure in a beautiful setting!

This is one of the few budget-friendly biking programs offered. It is presented in a beautiful area on good trails and roads with little traffic. Accommodations are dorm style with private rooms for two and the bathroom down the hall. Basic but clean. Beautiful lounge in the dorm for people to visit in and enjoy a warm fire on cold days.

Great Trip! The location was wonderful and peaceful, staff ran the program smoothly while being flexible with our needs and preferences, trails are beautiful to bike on, are mostly paved and flat, low to moderate intensity, other "field trips" were fun, food great. Don't miss this trip.

Rides were more beautiful than expected- low traffic, nice pavement in good shape. One crushed limestone local trail that was fine for my road bike. Great locale and staff.
