Program Summary: 
In this fast-paced day and age, club management professionals are hard pressed to find time for substantive, casual conversation with fellow club managers. These stressed-out professionals need the Chautauqua Experience. Chautauquas were developed in the mid-nineteenth century as "mobile universities" that moved across America offering popular talks intended to bring insight and entertainment to rural America. The Bicycle Chautauqua has updated the concept by creating a reflective opportunity for working professionals to escape from the trenches; to bond and connect with ideas and people; and to think deeply about club management in a physically stimulating social setting. Interspersed amongst three days of bicycling will be three, two-hour debriefs focusing on issues raised during the day's ride. Each debrief will be preceded and followed by hours of discussion during breaks, maintenance periods, dinner and socialization.
