Event Report MCBC Wildflower Ride a Big Success!

On Saturday, April 22, MCBC teamed up with the Marin Chapter of the California Native Plant Society and the NorCal High School Cycling League to take 35 nature loving mountain bikers on a Wildflower Ride on Mt. Tam. It was a day of discovery, and boy did we hit the jackpot! Everywhere you looked the landscape was awash in pink, blue, red, orange, yellow and bright green. We observed 80 different native and rare plants on a 20 mile ride around Mt. Tam.
A big “Thank You!” to ride leaders Bruce Homer-Smith from the Marin Chapter of the Native Plant Society, Joe Breeze from the Marin Museum of Bicycling, Christina Toms from NICA and conservation professional Phil Greer.
We wanted to pass along some plant- and bike-related resources that might be of interest:

A special thanks to Good Earth Natural Foods for donating the pre-ride snacks and to the Marin Municipal Water District for premitting the ride on their watershed.

The wildflower mountain bike ride on Mt. Tam was such a big success, we anticipate this will be the first of many docent-led nature-oriented mountain bike rides in Marin.
