We just got featured in the Berkeley Daily Planet! In a fun bit of 'trail magic' on one of our recent rides at the Berkeley Marina / Albany Blub, a steward of the Cesar Chavez-Dolores Huerta Solar Calendar showed up at the same time our group from Latitude High 37.8 was discussing how the calendar works. What a moment in time!

"All of the stress just comes off of you and right there during that time you are just yourself, enjoying life and enjoying each other in nature."
Great article from USA Today on the 'Nature Gap' for Black youth. We could not agree more on the social and emotional benefits from being outside. We hope our Trail Ride program can help close the 'Nature Gap' and get more Black youth outside!
