7:30 - 10 a.m. | Pedal Putnam County

Inn at DePauw (front entrance)

Begin your day with a 13-mile bike ride led by Wes Kendall ’01, starting from campus and taking in the Putnam County countryside. The ride begins at 7:30 a.m., and cyclists of all riding levels and ages are welcome (BYOB: Bring your own bicycle!). The group will ride south, by the Peeler Art Center and athletic fields, then into the country on the way to the historic Houck Covered Bridge, which was built in 1880 (and completely restored), is one of the county’s three oldest. Now off-road, the bridge can be an idyllic resting point for casual cyclists wanting to enjoy Big Walnut Creek, which runs underneath, and the dozens of swallows also nesting underneath.  Boone-Hutcheson Cemetery, the final resting place of Daniel Boone’s sister, sister-in-law and their families, is high on a hill overlooking the bridge. From there, the ride will take a different route back to campus, through wooded areas, maybe a second historic covered bridge and, of course, farms and fields of corn and beans. Most of the route will be on fairly flat paved road, but some gravel roads and some hills are included. You will be back at the Inn at DePauw in time to clean up and be ready to enjoy the day in an Old Gold way.

8 - 11 a.m. | Breakfast available for purchase

Breakfast will be available for purchase at various locations on-campus (Wallace-Stewart Commons inside Hoover Hall, 2 West at the Inn at DePauw) or in locations around downtown. For locations and information on dining in Greencastle that are close to campus, please click here (please note that this will open in a new window).
