Explore Lynch Canyon on a bike
July 17, 2012
Explore Lynch Canyon by mountain bike Saturday, July 21 from 9 a.m. to noon with volunteer Karen Peitz.
This ride is designed especially for families and beginners, and is open to anyone and any cycling ability. Slower riders will not be left behind.
Depending on the preferences of the group, the route may be an easy ride to the reservoir and back, or a more challenging ride with hills. Peitz will share Lynch Canyon's history and educational benefits at points along the way.
Participants with mountain bikes and helmets are invited to meet Peitz in the parking lot at 9 a.m. to begin exploring Lynch Canyon by bike. The guided ride is free, and parking is $5 per motorized vehicle. Arriving by bike is absolutely free. No RSVP is required.
Riders must wear helmets, and should wear sturdy closed-toe shoes as well as protection from sun, wind, and fog. Bringing plenty of water is a must since there is no drinking water anywhere on the property. Gloves, snacks, a picnic lunch and bug repellent are also recommended.
Lynch Canyon is located at the intersection of Lynch Road and McGary Road, between the Red Top Road and American Canyon/Hiddenbrooke Parkway exits off I-80. For questions, call 707-432-0150 x200 or email email@example.com.
