50th Anniversary Bike Tours
Free Morro Bay 50th Landmark City Parks Bicycle & Trolley Tour – May 10
Join us on a bicycle tour of Morro Bay’s many parks and learn more than you thought you would. Find out where Morro Bay’s smallest park is located. Discover which park is the City’s newest park. Are any of the parks orphaned? Can they be adopted? Our route will take us from Yerba Buena to Bayshore Drive in a meandering fashion.
As much as we can, we will ride on separated bike paths away from motor vehicles. Sometimes though we will ride with traffic and we will do it safely. Your guide will explain how you can safely navigate with the group. Also, we will experience a couple of steep hills, but they are short hills. Don’t feel bad if you get off your bike and push it up the hill. You won’t be the only one.
A couple of tips – wear comfortable and colorful clothing. You want to be seen. Make sure your bike is in good shape; a good bike mechanic is hard to find when you’re out on the road. Bring water, snacks, eye and skin protection, spare tubes that will fit your bike wheels and wear a helmet, even if you are over 18.
