By Dave Weinstein, President of the El Cerrito Trail Trekkers.
During our fourth year as a trail building, advocacy and hiking group, we:
Convinced the City of El Cerrito to acquire the 8-acre Madera Open Space, a gap in the city’s Hillside Natural Area. We are spearheading an effort to help pay for this land by raising $100,000.
Thanks to everyone who came to this years public meeting of the Trail Trekkers. We met on Sunday, January 26 at the Harding Park Clubhouse. President Dave Weinstein, Vice-president Jenny Hammer, Secretary/Treasurer Pam Austin, Maryann Pomegranate and Tom Gehling were re-elected, and Mark Miner, the chair of the El Cerrito Environmental Quality Committee, was elected as a new, at-large member of the board.
Do you have a bike? Do you like to go biking with other people? Would you go on Trail Trekker sponsored bike rides?
While many of the steeper trails (not to mention stairways!) of El Cerrito might be a bit daunting for the casual rider, the flatlands of El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville and Richmond offer many opportunities for those who enjoy two-wheeled travel. The Ohlone Greenway, Santa Fe right-of-way and the Bay Trail are just some of the possibilities for scenic, but mostly level, rides. We in the El Cerrito Trail Trekkers are interested in whether this interests you. Would you like to come riding with us?
What do you get if you go on one of Roberta Maguire’s Albany Hill hikes? Well obviously a hike. And some history. And good conversation. And during the winter you’ll probably get a beautiful sunset. But there is more for those willing to take that extra effort. Who doesn’t like a nice swing?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
