There is no cut-off date for applying.

Some trips fill up earlier than others - sometimes as early as mid-January. We would suggest that you apply as early as you can if you are looking at a specific trip or have tight date requirements. However, there are usually some spaces left on some trips as late as July and August.

Choose your trip according to the grade you will be finishing before the trip, not the grade you'll be entering in the fall.

Our grade groupings are not, however, inflexible. If you feel, for example, that your 9th grade daughter is very mature and you (and she) are quite certain that she can deal successfully with students currently in the 10th grade, we will consider her for a senior high trip.

Another example would be if you have an 9th grade son who is older than the other students in his grade (he was held back or got off schedule while living abroad, etc.), he could be considered for a senior high trip where the other trippers would be his age.

However, please be sure to consider the matter carefully before making a final decision. Feel free to call and speak with one of the directors to discuss which age/grade group would be most appropriate.
Bike trips place unique demands on trippers which translate into growth as teen travellers mature to become students not of the bike or the bike camp but of the world.

A student bike trip to anywhere offers real-life rewards and involvement, builds skills, and is road tested to last a lifetime.
