    Join the Ventura Hillsides Conservancy (VHC) on a FREE COMMUNITY BIKE RIDE from our Willoughby Preserve to our Big Rock Preserve. On Saturday, July 22nd at 1 PM, we will gather together at Ventura's Main Street Bridge Kiosk and pedal approximately 6 miles (the route is slightly uphill) to our Big Rock Preserve.

    Upon arrival, VHC staff will lead you on a beautiful nature walk along the banks of the Ventura River and we will then pedal the 6 miles back. The round-trip 12 mile tour should last approximately 2 hours and is appropriate for bike riders with beginner/intermediate riding experience.

    Please bring your bike, helmet, water to stay hydrated and a sense of adventure!
