Following successful trips during the last 6 summers, a new group of students from the Bronx Lab School will spend 8 days cycling a section of the historic Underground Railroad in Ohio in the summer of 2015. This 280-mile bike trip will be an extraordinary opportunity for the ‘Bronx Lab Underground Railroad Riders’ to discover a significant period of our nation’s history while experiencing the joy and beauty of bicycling. The journey will foster self-discovery, teamwork and leadership, and physical fitness. It is an experience which will provide unique learning opportunities aboutour past, and insight into ourselves.
