River Trails and Ice Cream Bike Ride

Pedal the historic Binghamton River Trail along the Chenango River. We'll show you bicycle routes that will help you commute between downtown and campus without hitting the Parkway. Bring money for a frozen yogurt stop on the way back. If you need a bike, Outdoor Pursuits bikes can be assigned for the ride. Helmets are required! Local maps will be available. Meet outside the Outdoor Pursuits office, side door of the East Gym with your bike.

Outdoor Pursuits Trail Crew GIM

This is a new group that began in the spring! Stewardship of our natural places, a spirit of camaraderie, meeting new people and satisfying hard work – that is our promise for those looking to give back to our regional trails. Outdoor Pursuits has adopted a 5.6 mile section of the Finger Lakes Trail in the nearby western Catskills. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to do your fair share, take pride in your work and be part of a team effort.

Expect to do manual physical labor, hike up to 4 miles to and from a work site and participate in all aspects of maintaining an existing trail and installing signage. Come learn more about us, our goals and project(s) and give us your ideas too. Pizza and refreshments will be served.
