There, Pocono Biking will fit you for a bike and provide a bike helmet. Enjoy a 3.5-mile ride down the Switchback Trail until you reach Pocono Biking in downtown Jim Thorpe. Return the bike, then head down to the river for your rafting briefing for the 8-mile whitewater rafting adventure! An all-you-can eat buffet will be served midway. Buses will shuttle back to Mauch Chunk Lake. RATE: $45 per person - open to anyone ages 8 and up.

Reservation is under Alicia Kline, Turn To Us. WHAT TO WEAR: Wear running/biking clothing to start the trip. You may bring a bag with change of clothes for the rafting portion. Bags must close and be clearly labeled with your name. We will take them to Pocono Biking so you can change before you hit the river. No flip flops are allowed on the river - wear old sneakers or water shoes. This is not a race as the group will raft together. Event is rain or shine. You WILL get wet on the river. While this is a fundraiser for Turn To Us, this is a great way for Turn To Us to get the community out in nature, get active, and have fun!
