A Virtual Bike Trip Across America - with Chautauqua Stops on the Philosophy of Life and Healthy Aging

Did you ever dream of biking across the United States–coast to coast–but your legs declined the offer? Now OLLI offers a five-day virtual trip all the way across. Each day includes four segments: a virtual trip, a Chautauqua on the philosophy of life, a second virtual trip, and a second Chautauqua on healthy aging. Virtual travel segments will take us from the Pacific Coast of Oregon, through the California Redwoods, over to the Grand Canyon, through most of the national parks and over to Pennsylvania Dutch country, down the Blue Ridges, and out to the Gulf Coast. You will bike from the comfort of your own chair and at your own pace - even if that is just sitting still. This course could empty your bucket list! Oh, the places we will go on a Bike-O-Vision.
Note: This course meets each day Monday - Friday, on the last week of March.
