Sr. High Bike Trip
March 31, 2023 - April 8, 2023
Join us on a bike trip through Florida during spring break in 2023!
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 for more than 30 years. You don’t want to miss this road trip!
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 31, 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.
$500 ($400 if you commit to volunteering for Spring Clean)
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 55 students and 20 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.
