In the Hotel Coolidge dining room, our first night dinner is a plated meal with green salad, stuffed chicken breast with rice and hot vegetables, rolls, dessert, and beverages include coffee, tea, water. If you’re traveling by Amtrak (arriving approximately 6:30 p.m.) don’t worry, we’ll keep your meal warm while you settle in.
Orientation: After dinner we'll remain in the dining room for orientation. Our Group Leaders will greet everyone and lead introductions. We will review the program theme, the up-to-date daily schedule and any changes, discuss safety guidelines, emergency procedures, roles and responsibilities, and answer any questions you may have. Indicated times are approximate. Program activities, schedules, and personnel may need to change due to local circumstances. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding. We have set aside some free time in the schedule for your personal independent exploration. The Group Leader and hotel staff are available to make recommendations. The majority of the week's routes will cover paved roads and bike paths. The van is in constant motion sweeping back and forth in support of the riders. Riders are encouraged to go at individual paces to enjoy the view and not be rushed. On most days, more than one route options will be available and in such cases either the support van or the leader-on-bike will provide appropriate support coverage. Continue getting to know your fellow participants, settle in, and get a good night’s rest for the week ahead.
