Join Guadalupe River Park Conservancy and experienced naturalist Greg Kerekes as they explore the Guadalupe River Trail on an exciting bicycling adventure! Observe and ask questions about the Guadalupe River’s diverse wildlife while traveling downstream on a four hour, 20 mile round trip ride from the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens to Alviso, and back.
This ride is mostly flat, but transitions from pavement to gravel. Make sure to bring water, a sack lunch, sunscreen, sunglasses, a bike with tires that can handle gravel, and a helmet. Bicyclists must be in good health and able to ride at least 20 miles at a moderate pace without difficulty. More experienced bicyclists are welcome, but must understand that they have to stay in pace with the rest of the class.
The class will meet at the Guadalupe River Park Visitor Center at 438 Coleman Avenue in San Jose, CA. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. Visit www.grpg.org or call 408-298-7657 to sign up, or get more information. Ages 18 and Older. $10/members, $15/non-members.
The ride will start at the Guadalupe River Park Visitor Center, head north and stop at important landmarks along the way. Participants will enjoy a 30 minute tour through the Ulistac Natural Area, a preserve that includes groves of Eucalyptus trees and provides a unique habitat for wildlife. The tour will continue to Alviso, where the Guadalupe Slough spills out into the San Francisco Bay. After a 45 minute lunch break, the tour will return to the Visitor Center.
