Reunion on Wheels

wheelsThirty Vanderbilt alumnae from 13 states—and nearly all from the Class of 1982—gathered in May to celebrate their collective 50th birthdays with a “Women on Wheels” reunion and bicycle trip through California’s wine country. During the trip, which was organized by Liz Schwartz Hale, BSN’83, and her family’s Berkeley, Calif., active-travel company, Backroads, participants explored the vineyards, redwoods and coastlines of Napa and Sonoma counties.

“We enjoyed five days of biking, eating, laughing and reminiscing about our days together at Vanderbilt,” says Hale. “Having this time together was priceless.”
