Docents Patty Lovelace and Dave Kocsis will meet you at the coast for a leisurely climb up to the Skyline Boulevard area observing life in the redwoods as you go. After a rest you’ll ride back down some of the best single track around, through the fog or sun, with fantastic coastal views. This will be an intermediate ride with about 1,800 feet of climbing. Experienced youth cyclists are welcome. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after July 3.
