The Eco-History Bicycle Tour is new activity from the Environmental Learning Center which combines the fun and exercise of riding a
bicycle with a guided eco‐history tour of the Historic Jungle Trail . The tour is a
relaxed pace 8‐mile group bicycle ride lead by experienced guides with several interpretive
stops along the way that allow participants to learn more about the surrounding environment
The bicycle tour is designed such that people with a basic level of fitness can complete the entire tour in the time allotted. If, however, you are not able to complete the tour, the entire length of the route is accessible by motor vehicle and either your emergency contact or a guide will be able to rescue you and your bicycle by motor vehicle after the tour has ended.
Our guides are able to fix most common problems like flat tires and broken chains.
If, however, a problem arises that cannot be fixed, the same rescue procedure as described above can be used.
