*** UPDATE: There is no space at Pie Ranch for July - this ride has been moved BACK to August.... ***
Meet at Daly City BART at 9:00am. Ride to Pie Ranch from Daly City BART (approx 53 miles with some climbing over Montara Mt) and lots of stops to geek out over rock formations and geologic sights.
Ride 1 mile down Highway 1 to explore the Año Nuevo State Park and check out the elephant seals. Ride back to Daly City BART (or Redwood City Caltrain if you desire) via La Honda Road and the San Andreas Fault (60 miles total, hella hilly!). [Originally posted as continuing down to Santa Cruz (approx 22 miles total). Bus back to San Jose, Caltrain to SF. You can do this if you wish!).
Pie Ranch Barn Dance
On the third Saturday of each month, Pie Ranch hosts a Community Work Day, potluck dinner, and rollicking barn dance in the roadside barn.
Año Nuevo State Park
This park is a major gathering area for northern elephant seals, which may be seen year-round. The elephant seals return to Año Nuevo's beaches during the spring and summer months to molt and can be observed during this time through a permit system.
