Due to the rain, Saturday’s Discovery Ride is postponed until Oct. 11.
Here’s a press release received today from the North Coast Redwood Interpretative Association:
The Discovery Ride Through the Ancient Forest at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park that was scheduled for Saturday, October 4th will be postponed until Saturday, October 11th on account of rain. This free bike ride along the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway and Coastal Drive will start at the Elk Prairie Campground and Visitor Center at 8:00 a.m. for those taking the Tree to Sea Ride and at 10:00 a.m. for those taking the Old Growth Ride. An After-Ride Party will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Prairie Creek Visitor Center. Additional information is available by calling (707) 465-2144 or (707) 488-2169.
This is a great ride because it’s geared toward all fitness levels. You can meander up the road for a short distance and admire the ancient redwoods, or you can pedal all the way to the Klamath River and back. Here are some photos from last year’s ride:
Look for Bigfoots.
