Join us for a leisurely ride along Arcata Bay to observe and document the highest tides of the year. It may be moist out, so dress for the weather.
When: Friday, February 9 at 11 am to 1pm
Where: We’ll meet at the NEC office at 415 I Street in Arcata and bike through the Arcata Marsh, past the wastewater treatment plant, and out to where the Bay Trail ends. Depending on the weather, we’ll either stop somewhere along the way for tea and snacks or we’ll come back to the NEC office for refreshments.
Why: For fun! These tides are powerful to witness firsthand. The views will also help us imagine how sea level rise will affect our community. We’ll bring some binoculars for casual birding.
This ride is intended not only for those who are curious about King Tides and how sea level rise might affect infrastructure, but those who are curious about biking and maybe don’t do it as much as they’d like. We understand that not everyone is comfortable using bikes as transportation and it’s our goal to create spaces for folks to develop a cycling habit. It’s easier (and more fun!) if we do it together. Beginners are very welcome.
Please REGISTER HERE. If you don’t have a bike, we’ll be in touch beforehand to figure out if we can rent you one. It’s on us.
Bike Justice Humboldt rides are possible through a Whale Tail grant from the California Coastal Commission. Rides are a collaboration between the NEC, Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities and Moon Cycles bike shop.
