Return to Cornell’s beautiful campus and enjoy an education vacation with Cornell’s Adult University (CAU). In the biking course for adults, you’ll experience the best of the Finger Lakes as you pedal past gorges, waterfalls, farmlands, lakes, and vistas with Cornell Outdoor Education’s expert bike leaders. Ride 15 to 30 miles a day with elevation gains of 1,500 feet through quiet back roads and up and down the moderate hills typical of this beautiful terrain. You need not have competed in the Tour de France, but reasonable physical fitness and biking ease are essential. We’ll work our way up from moderate to longer rides, and we’ll break at a few spots for picnic lunches, hiking, and contemplative awe. We’ll also enjoy the support and camaraderie of the group.  Learn more and register at
