AU Press Releases

AU bikers looking for cyclists to join ride!

The 2012 Bike trip to the Alfred University Reunion will start in Mars! (Mars, PA, that is, a suburb of Pittsburgh). David Conrad '76, Roger Eiss ‘58, and Jim Randall '77 have selected Mars as the starting point of this reunion bike trip. The newest rider is Tom Monna '86.

Past Alfred University reunion bike trips have crossed the Poconos (‘03 and ‘08 reunions), the Catskills ('10) and the Adirondacks ('11). This year the bikers will cross the Alleghenies!

They are busily planning the ride. More bikers are welcome. Alums are also welcome to join them on a bike for a day as they pass through your area, or for lunch or dinner at a local restaurant. The detailed itinerary will be:

• Sunday, June 3: Mars, PA to Clarion, PA
• Monday, June 4: Clarion, PA to St. Marys, PA
• Tuesday, June 5: St. Marys ,PA to Coudersport, PA
• Wednesday, June 6: Coudersport, PA to Bath NY
• Thursday, June 7: Bath to Hornell
• Friday June 8: Hornell to Alfred

AU alumni are welcome to join them at any point of the trip. Bike only from Hornell to Alfred and share in the glory. Join them on a bike as they pass through your home area. Or if you are not a biker, join them in a restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Contact them and recommend your favorite restaurant; they'd love to join you there. In 2011 they dined with alumni at most of their stops - people they had never met until that meal, but who shared with them their wonderful times at Alfred University.
