Local bicyclists view coastal farms on 20-mile POST organized ride

by Jym Clendenin on June 28, 2015

On Saturday morning (6/27), over 75 bicyclists of all ages and skills — many from Menlo Park —participated in the first Bike the Coast with POST (Peninsula Open Space Trust). The 20-mile loop began on Cloverdale Road just outside of Pescadero.

Pigeon Point light houseRiding south, the first stop was at the Root Down Farm , a new organic farm startup on POST-protected land. After a short talk by the farm staff on sustainable farming and a quick view of the farm’s young turkeys, the ride proceeded to Rte. 1 via Gazos Creek Road and then north to the iconic Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

Several acres between the lighthouse and the highway have been preserved by POST. Following a group photo, the ride continued to Pescadero via Bean Hollow Road and then back to the start on Cloverdale. Most of the land that was circled, i.e., on the right-hand side of the riders, is today POST-protected land. The warm, sunny day more than compensated for a rather strong south wind.
