PE 1668: Recreational Biking

Recreational Biking

Recreational Biking is for those who want to explore Ithaca and Tompkins county under their own power by bike. Roads and bike paths will lead you right from campus to waterfalls, scenic views and ice cream! In addition to rides of 8-15 miles each day, you’ll learn how to take care of your bike and do some basic repairs. Rides will not be fast paced, but Ithaca has lots of hills so reasonable physical fitness and the ability to comfortably ride a bike are essential. Rental bikes are available for a $60 fee.
