We will ride the dedicated Capital bike trail from the visitor's center
Three options for this event:
You can ride your bike to Berkeley (which is near the end of and right off the Capital trail). You will need a hybrid or mountain bike if you choose this option. The roads are not paved. It is probably 2-3 miles from the trail to the plantation. (approx. 20 miles there and back)
Cycle to the end of the trail and return to the visitor's center. Load your bike and drive to Berkeley and meet everyone there. (approx. 15 miles total)
Ride how ever much you feel like riding on the trail or don't ride at all and meet us at Berkeley.
Suggested items to bring:
- Road, hybrid or mountain bike
- Feel free to rock the spandex but you might want to bring back up clothes to avoid looking like a goof for the festival portion;)
