About The Trek
Explore Rochester and the surrounding area in a whole new way! This three day trek involves biking from The University to Letchworth State Park, along the beautiful Gennesse Valley Park Trail. The trip is around 40 miles, but is split up with lunch and water breaks. Once we arrive at Letchworth, we will set up camp and get to explore the Grand Canyon of the East! Letchworth is known for its breathtaking waterfalls and hiking trails.

Trek Leaders

Hey there, I’m Steve! I’m a rising junior originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, and the great outdoors, among other interests. I’m studying Computer Science with clusters in Philosophy and Sustainability. I’m part of the UR Cycling Club along with Nick. I’m also very involved with music here; my friend and I have a radio show where we showcase new music from various artists. I really love backpacking and exploring nature, probably because I went to high school in Montana near Glacier National Park. I look forward to getting to know each of you. Get excited!

Hey Trekees!! I’m Micaela Holmes and I’m from a small town about an hour outside of Philly. I am a rising sophomore majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. In addition to being a part of this awesome club, I am a D’Lion (s/o to Morgan 4) and a part of the Women’s Rowing team. I love fluffy dogs and exploring the outdoors. I was on cycling my first-year year and it was one of my favorite experiences so I am pumped to be leading it this year. Can’t wait to bike through New York with you guys!!

Why can’t a bicycle stand up on its own? ¡pǝɹıʇ oʍʇ s,ʇı ǝsnɐɔǝq
If you aren’t tired (ba dum tss) of my lame humor yet, then you certainly will be by the end of our trek! I’m Nick and I am an avid avid mountain biker from Needham, MA. At Rochester I study Mechanical Engineering and am part of the UR Cycling Club and the Alpine Ski Team. I’ve made many great friends through UR FOOT, and by participating you will immediately be inducted into the (not particularly official) Cool Kid’s Club at UR.
