Join us for a guided bike tour from Woodcock Nature Preserve to the Village of Albany. At the Woodcock Nature Preserve an expert birder will lead the group in a birding session. Then we will ride 4.7 miles to the Village of Albany for a historical walk through. We will be hearing stories from local historians about the underground railroad along with one of the first colleges for people of color, the Albany Enterprise Academy. We will also be visiting a local coffee shop located in a historical building to view old photographs of Albany along with hearing the owners vision of the village in the future. To conclude the tour we'll bike 4.7 miles back The Woodcock Nature Preserve. This is a non-supported ride, meaning participants should come prepared with personal bike repair kits and water. Participants should expect gravel roads, some single track trail and 500 ft elevation gain with 4.9% max grade. Helmets are required and minor children are permitted on this tour but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A portion of all ticket sales will go to the efforts of the Mount Zion Baptist Church Preservation Society to restore the historic church as a thriving community hub once again. Your participation will help Mount Zion accomplish their mission of supporting the contributions, history, and ongoing concerns of Black Americans everywhere.
