Geneva Across America:
Cycle to the Sea
A team of alumni, staff and friends of Geneva College are currently training to pedal their bicycles across the country this summer for Geneva Across America (GAA). This 10-week journey will take riders 3,708-miles, through 13 states, beginning on May 20 in San Francisco, California, and ending on July 17 in Lewes, Delaware. The purpose of the effort is to raise as much money as possible for a new, endowed scholarship for future Geneva students.
All alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends are invited to help—by donating to the scholarship fund (which has already reached $27,000), praying for the team, providing supplies—and even riding along.
Now, GAA organizers are excited to announce a revised route that brings the team much closer to Geneva College during the final leg of the journey. This portion of the trip, “Cycle to the Sea,” makes joining the adventure much more convenient for many who would like to ride with the team.
“If you enjoy cycling, Christian community, and are looking for an epic summer adventure, then join us and help us celebrate the final leg our adventure.”
- Dr. Michael Loomis, Dean of Student Development.
The cost for the “Cycle to the Sea” portion is $525 per rider, which covers food and other related expenses. Those who join “Cycle to the Sea” will meet up with the team at the McKeesport Great Allegheny Passage Trailhead on Tuesday, July 9 at 10 a.m. Participants may also meet at Geneva at 8:30 a.m. and drive together to the trail marker. The group will then travel with the team during the nine-day final stretch, which ends on July 17. The application deadline is April 19
In addition, anyone interested in participating in any portion of the trip has the option of riding for $85 a day.
Geneva alumni across the nation are also encouraged to show their support for Geneva Across America by cheering the team along their journey.
