“Bay Trail Confidential” free Zoom program
Dec 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Kensington resident, avid cyclist and AS&R member/volunteer Rodney Paul wants to let everyone on the list know about a FREE Zoom program he hosts called Bay Trail ConfidentialEach month, he highlights different public spaces on the Bay Trail and talks about ways to make the most of them.
Words from Rodney:
“The program explores the inviting and spectacular public places along the Bay Trail route. On each show, we spotlight a particular place and have guests providing inside knowledge on what to expect and how to make the most of your visits. We also discuss the wide array of activities the Bay Trail supports such as hiking, biking, kayaking, photography, birding, swimming and many others. We talk about the wildlife you can see and history you’ll learn about along the Trail. Each month’s show will provide specific recommendations and valuable information to help you make the most of this amazing public resource.”
Here’s a brief preview of this Bay Trail Confidential program:
“We’ll be joined by Sally Dinwoodie and Barbara Christianson, who have led a group of women who circumnavigated the Bay on foot over a period of four years.  Journalist Aleta George has written about their adventures and will also appear on the show.  In addition, I’ll begin talking about the Bay Trail Taco project and give information on how to get more involved.”

The program is hosted by SF City Guides. We’re grateful to everyone who can make a donation and help us keep our non-profit strong as we weather the pandemic.

On my program, I encourage people to ask questions and share thoughts using Chat.  At the end of the one-hour program, we invite attendees to unmute and share thoughts.

I’ve also created a Bay Trail Confidential web page that provides a good description of the program and has links to register for all our upcoming shows and other good information.  It’s at https://rodneysftours.com/btc

I hope many of you will be able to join us.  We’ve already explored a lot of other terrific Bay Trail places including Coyote Hills in Fremont, the new Crane Cove Park in SF and the many Bay Trail segments in Richmond.  We reach people all over the Bay Area, and my hope is that each show will encourage many to check out new segments.
