Rail History Bike Tour

Join EcoRing for a socially distanced cycling fundraiser ride along the historic route of the North Pacific Coast Railroad.

About this Event

Learn the colorful history of the narrow-gauge steam-powered North Pacific Coast Railroad as we ride its route near the Russian River and beneath the redwoods.  Compare historic photos with the present day conditions and dream of a future trail.  This event is a fundraiser to support our advocacy to convert the original right-of-way to a multi-use pathway.
