A Bicycle Tour Across the Himalayas

May 9, 2013

ARMCHAIR TRAVELERS, a monthly program, will take place at the Livermore Civic Center Library on THURSDAY, MAY 9TH, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Join cyclist Dan Moore on a photographic revisit of his September 2004 bicycle trip to India with an international group of eleven riders. The tour started in Leh (11,500’) and crossed 6 passes over 13,000’ on the way to Manali, covering over 400 miles in eleven days. This part of India is rarely visited by standard tours. The US riders conducted a physiological study of adaptation by young and old to high altitude exercise as an Explorers Club official outing.

Adults are invited to this free program on the second Thursday of each month in the Community Meeting Rooms of the Civic Center Library, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue, Livermore.  For additional information please call 925 373-5500.
