About the Experience
We invite you to come mountain biking with us in Danville at the Geisinger or Hopewell Park Trails. This area is about 30 miles from campus and features an extensive network of trails specifically designed for mountain biking. This area is great in the spring and fall!
THIS TRIP REQUIRES PRIOR MOUNTAIN BIKING EXPERIENCE. LEADERS WILL CHECK IN WITH EACH PARTICIPANT AHEAD OF THE TRIP TO DISCUSS THEIR EXPERIENCE. PLEASE CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
ALL MOUNTAIN BIKING TRIPS ARE DEPENDENT ON WEATHER AND TRAIL CONDITIONS. LEADERS WILL COMMUNICATE ANY CHANGES ACCORDINGLY.
We'll first meet at our Basecamp on Bucknell's campus. From there we'll commute over to the Geisinger Trails OR Hopewell Park Trails in Danville to spend the day mountain biking and enjoying the outdoors.

Cancellations & No Shows
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 after your pre-trip meeting (approximately 1 week in advance of a trip) and let us know of your cancellation. You can do this by going back to our Portal and clicking on the “CONTACT” button in the upper right of the screen.
Failure to contact us of your cancellation in this predetermined timeframe is noted by the OEL Admin Team. After 3 instances (not showing up or cancelling less than a week prior to the trip 3 times), a student will not be allowed to register for future OEL Trips & Outings here at Bucknell.
