Join Western alumni and friends on our sixth annual cycling trip led by Western's President Emeritus, Dr. Paul Davenport. Each year from 2007 on, Paul has led an annual Kinesiology cycling trip as a credit course for students. Now retired and living in France, we are pleased to have Paul leading these trips for our alumni groups as well.
Our 2015 itinerary will be much like the trip offered in 2010 and 2011, cycling the Loire region, going west from Tours, France. You will see some of the great chateaux of the Loire Valley, take part in wine-tastings and learn about the history and culture of Touraine. We typically select three-star hotels for a comfortable stay each night.
This is a trip for physically active alumni and friends who can bike up to 40 km a day. The time on the bikes is broken during the day for a sandwich lunch and visits to the various sites.
Your journey will conclude with three days in Paris, where we visit the Orsay and Louvre museums, and take an evening boat cruise on the Seine.
Through Western’s ambitious fundraising campaign, Be Extraordinary, we are raising the bar to enrich The Western Experience.
We are preparing students to become the next generation of global leaders. We are also inspiring innovative learning and igniting world-class discovery to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
We invite alumni and friends to participate in our campaign, and help double the number of alumni who contribute to making Western extraordinary.
Be part of something that's already a part of you.
