Purpose and Mission of the Bike Ride Across Texas
2016, for the
fourth straight year, students in the Leadership Studies Program at
Hardin-Simmons University organized and completed a long-distance
bicycle ride--this time, from Mexico to Canada!
ride provided students with a real and very complex project to plan,
organize, and execute. Responsible for all aspects of the project,
students learn valuable skills through their interactions with the team
and others during all phases of the ride.
In particular, the participants on the Bike Ride Across Texas gain leadership,
organization, and teamwork skills through the planning and
execution of the project. From goal setting, critical thinking,
planning, and problem solving to motivation, conflict resolution,
awareness of individual differences, supportive communication, teamwork,
and project management, the bike rides give Leadership
Studies Program students opportunities to practice and develop
leadership and organization skills in a real project.
in the process of formulating ideas for a fifth ride in 2017--one
that will take us across Texas and several other states! Please spend a little time exploring our
website and our videos, news stories, and pictures from our first four
rides. We ask that you would also consider helping our riders with a tax-deductible contribution through our
university. Thanks for your interest and for learning about
us--now let's go hit the road.
