Bike ride to learn more about saving Ventura Hillsides

Hills on Wheels Sunday, May 17, 2009, 1pm

The Ventura Hillsides Conservancy has scheduled the 12th in its ongoing series of educational outreach pertaining to Ventura's open space. The second Hills on Wheels Ventura River valley cycling tour will offer a first for the land trust: a hosted visit to one of the Conservancy's conservation parcels. The ride will follow the award-winning bike path through historic industrial and rural landscapes with the Ventura Hillsides as an ever-present backdrop. The second annual Hills on Wheels will take place Sunday, May 17, 2009 beginning at 1:00 PM. The ride will commence at the public parking lot at West Main Street and the Ventura River, west of Patagonia and the Ojai Freeway overpass. It will continue to historic Foster Park, whereupon riders will turn around for the downhill run back to Ventura.

Hills on Wheels participants will be accompanied by naturalists on bikes who will stop to point out natural history features along the route. The stops will educate riders about how watersheds function, the importance of estuaries, as well as provide an opportunity to visit to the land trust's recent riverside land acquisition, the Waldo Trust property. The end-point for the ride is Foster Park, where refreshments will be waiting. The riders will then return back to the start in Ventura. The total length of the turnaround ride is 12 miles. Riders should wear bike helmets and bring drinking water.
