Since 2003 there have been six bike trips to the Alfred University Reunion:

  • In 2003 and 2008 alumni bikers reached Alfred after crossing the Pocono Mountains, starting north of Philadelphia.
  • In 2010 alumni bikers reached Alfred after crossing the Catskill Mountains, starting near Newburgh.
  • In 2011 alumni bikers reached Alfred after crossing the Adirondack Mountains, starting in Lake Placid.
  • In 2012 alumni bikers (“Bikers from Mars”) reached Alfred after crossing the Allegheny Mountains, starting in Mars PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh. 
  • In 2013 alumni bikers (“Alums along the Mohawk”) reached Alfred after following the Mohawk River and old Erie Canal, starting in Albany. 

This year the Alfred University bikers are going international! The bike ride to the 2014 Alfred University reunion will begin in Toronto, Canada and follow the shores of Lake Ontario to Niagara Falls, crossing the border and continuing along the lake shore towards Rochester before heading south through the Genesee River valley to Letchworth State Park. Detailed news of the trip and route will follow. 

We invite other alumni to join us! You are welcome to take part in the entire ride, ride with us for a day or two, or meet us for lunch or dinner along the way. The AU reunion ride is becoming an annual event and momentum is building! Early rides averaged five riders for the entire trip. Last year we had 10-12 riders for most of the trip.
