After a hearty breakfast, we’ll join our Group Leader in the hotel conference room for a presentation on safety, rules of the road, and the IBT Corner System, the way in which we will navigate on the road throughout the course of this program. We’re ready to bicycle and our destination is the Hugo Junkers Aircraft Museum for a lecture and field trip.
