Sr. High Bike Trip
March 26 - April 3
Join us on a bike trip through Florida during this year’s spring break!
Join the RBC Sr. High Youth Ministry as we travel down to Florida by charter bus, and then bike across Florida and right into Disney. This has been one of the best trips for our teens and their friends over the past 30 years. You don’t want to miss this road trip! We have added COVID precautions to do this trip as safely as possible.
$425 (which is $150 less than last year’s cost due to credits that we rolled over to the trip this year)
Our Goals for the Bike Trip
To stretch our teens physically, relationally, and spiritually; to build character, the ability to encourage others, and have the best spring break ever.
What We Do on the Bike Trip
We drive through the night on March 26, spend a half day at the beach, bike for four days (between 30 to 50 miles per day), spend a day in a Disney park, have an awards time and some hang time at Disney until we start our travel back home Friday night. Our bike staff is experienced with leading groups in outdoor adventures. They are well trained and do an excellent job in making the trip fun and safe one for all who go. Everyone is part of a “crew” – helping with meals, setting up tents, handling the group’s luggage, or maintaining the bikes. We will have group time each day where we can celebrate the day, share what we are experiencing & learning, and be challenged to grow in our relationship with God.
What is covered in the cost?
The price of the trip includes the mountain bike for the week, the bike staff, lodging, most meals, admission to Disney, and two t-shirts. The bikers will need to bring money to cover eight meals, snacks, and souvenirs. The expense of the bus and some additional costs are covered by friends of RBC in order to make the trip affordable for our teens and their friends to be able to go.
Numbers & Deadlines
We are limited to about 40 students and 16 of our own staff because of logistics, safety, and the desire to build a true “group” sense on the trip. Registration will be on a first-come basis and will factor having about a even split between guys and girls. We will let you know if you are on the waiting list. Don’t delay! Our teens are encouraged to bring friends with them who also want to get stretched and allow them to enjoy this experience together. Parents are encouraged to visit the website for additional information.

in close proximity to other people outside our group. We will have only 5 people in each of our 10-man tents which will have ample ventilation.
We will have an ample supply of hand sanitizer and students will use it throughout the day.
Teens and staff will be asked to be conscientious during our week together not to hug, not to share food, and to remain physically distanced.
We will not be stopping at fast food restaurants on the way down and back but will instead have food brought to us at a predetermined location.
Bathroom stops will require us to use facilities in public locations where we will use masks and hand sanitizer.
We will be bringing one staff male and one female that we will call our “COVID couple.” They will be with us on the trip and if anyone on the trip is confirmed to have COVID, they will have their own transportation and lodging for them to be with the students in quarantine. They will stay in quarantine until Friday when they will travel back in their quarantine vehicle along with the group that will be in the bus. We do not foresee this happening but want to be prepared if it does.
