About the Experience

Overview

Join us for a bike ride from campus along the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail. This local scenic rail trail is 9.5 miles long and connects downtown Lewisburg with Mifflinburg to our west. It follows the route of a railroad that once ran from Montandon to Bellefonte crossing through Union County. This path dates back to the mid 1800's. We have bikes, helmets, water and snacks! We do ask that all participants have some experience riding a bike. 

Location

We'll first meet at our Basecamp on Bucknell's campus. From there we'll commute over to Buffalo Valley Rail Trail.

Cancellations & No Shows

Complimentary (FREE) OEL Trips & Outings provided to Bucknell students have limited capacity. If a student signs up and doesn’t show for the program, it’s disruptive for everyone involved and takes away from other student’s experience.

We understand that things come up and life happens. We get it. We simply ask that you notify us at least 48 hours in advance of a Trip or Outing and let us know of your cancellation. You can do this by going back to our Portal and clicking on the “CONTACT” orange button in the upper right of the screen.

Failure to contact us of your cancellation is noted by the OEL Admin Team. After 3 instances (not showing up 3 times without notice), a student will not be allowed to register for future OEL Trips & Outings here at Bucknell.
