Trails Update

Pismo Preserve Ride, Saturday, July 15

11 riders enjoyed the trails at the Pismo Preserve in all kinds of weather. In our 3+ hour ride, we experienced light fog, warm winds, cool temperatures, heavy fog, cold winds, rain drops and full sun! We always need to be prepared for changeable weather but it was kind of wild. The trails were beautiful and everyone did well. We had one incident involving bees or wasps but thankfully no lasting harm. It was a great opportunity to experience all the work that thousands of volunteer hours can accomplish. Thanks to everyone for coming out. Check out photos on the club’s Shutterfly account (log in information is in the newsletter). 

For more information about the Preserve including a trail map link, go the website for the Land Conservancy. Also check out the events calendar for docent led hikes and rides. You can sign up for rides for August as soon as dates are coordinated with docents.
