Bike Ride: The Intersection of Land, Bay and Outer Space
This easy bicycle ride along San Francisco Bay Trail offers views of not only sloughs and distant hills but also salt ponds, Moffett Field runways and hangars, and NASA Ames research facilities (including the air intake for the 80x120 foot wind tunnel).
Docent Laurel Stell will stop occasionally to describe how these sites reflect humans’ changing relationship with Earth and far, far beyond. Wildlife sightings may include herons, egrets, ducks, swallows, turtles and more.
Distance is 7 miles roundtrip; cycling speed will be roughly 10 MPH. Trail is flat with packed dirt
surface suitable for road or mountain bikes.
Bring water, binoculars, sunscreen.
Meet at the Sunnyvale Water Pollution Control Plant: parking instructions will be provided upon registration.
