Upper-Conzelman Road Opening and Bike Event

Grab your bike and join the Project Headlands team as we celebrate the reopening of Upper-Conzelman Road, including Hawk Hill, and the completion of the first year of construction improvements! The ride will start from the Northwest Bridge parking area promptly at 9 a.m., so please be sure to arrive early. Though the construction improved the road in many ways- this is still a difficult ride and should not be attempted by novices. After the bicycles have a head-start vehicles will be welcome to follow them bicycle parade to the top of the hill and complete the loop.

As a special thank you for your patience during construction, the project team will be providing refreshments and handing out free bicycle accessories at Hawk Hill to participants in the ride. There will be information booths, including Project team members, to answer any questions about the upcoming construction activities and improvements in the Headlands
