Downtown Fountain to Sage Garden

Meet at the Downtown Water Fountain at 5:30pm for a guided bike ride to the Starker Arts Park and returning back to the fountain between 7:00 and 7:30pm. This month is a hybrid adventure. We will be biking from the fountain on First Street in Corvallis to Starker Arts Park Sage Garden.  The bike cooperative will be at the fountain to help anyone with their bike.  No bike? No problem? Simply meet us at the Sage Garden for the guided tour which starts at 6:15! (SAGE garden is located at the far end of the parking lot)
The Corvallis Bike Collective will meet us at the fountain with their “ask a wrench” bike trailer, which is filled with bike tools and comes with a bike mechanic ready to help you with any minor bike fixes and questions you may have.
We will stop and play at the Avery Park workout station to stretch and play.
At our midpoint of Sage Garden where we will get a guided tour, is also a great place to join if you are running late or need to have someone pick you up.
As we want you all to join, bike rentals can be found through Peak Sports.
Be sure to wear your helmet!

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

The walk is on terrain that is moderately steep. See the video for typical trail conditions. We’ll be walking on a gravel road and trail. We’ll have some water bottles and snacks for you.  The Lewisburg Saddle hike is kid-friendly, but probably not stroller-friendly.  Reach out to Marty or Karen for more info on accomodations.

Adventures are always more fun when everyone has:

  • Comfortable walking shoes.
  • Appropriate clothing – remember that temperatures can drop in the evening and the wind can pick up.
  • Water
  • Snacks (I love having a trail mix of favorite nuts, dried fruit, and perhaps the odd chocolate chip or two).
  • A small first aid kit. Bandaids, Polysporin, gauze and clean water.
  • A backpack to carry items

Reluctant hikers? Perhaps bring a favorite stuffy or toy to join small hikers.
Plan to meet friends, this always helps move kids along.
