Ducks Live for the Outdoors
We push ourselves farther, seek out the remotest regions, find beauty and wisdom in every adventure. Whether you are an experienced explorer or a newbie, the Outdoor Program is excited to help facilitate your next trip. We offer a variety of class and clinics, bike rides and events, service projects, and group trips and events planned by Outdoor Program staff and co-op members.
Type of Events
May is going to be a great month for biking on campus and beyond! It’s a good time for fair-weather cyclists to roll those steads out of the garage and for everyone who rides bikes to celebrate together. With 30+ bike rides and events happening during the Eugene-Springfield Bike Month it’s the perfect time to try out something new! Visit webikelane.org for a complete list of events, dates, and times.
