What would you do if you were forced to leave your home, right now?

From June 24th – July 8th the Spoke’n Rev cyclists will get a sense of what that’s like. They’ll travel the route of another historic trail in America. The Trail of Tears.

The Trail of Tears was a series of forced relocations of North Carolina Cherokee, and other Native American nations in the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830.

These tours are “’project-based learning at its best, combining travel to powerful places with authentic experience of history and geography, collaboration towards a common goal, and intense physical activity.”1
