Crow Roost Twilight Bike Ride Saturday March 7th

19 Feb

CrowRoostBikeRide2020Crows are part of everyday life in Vancouver.  It’s pretty hard to miss them. If there’s something that’s bothering them, and it could be you, they will certainly let you know. For me, they are a good barometer of what’s happening in the neighbourhood. They will raise a ruckus if there is an eagle, hawk or coyote in the area. So those of us with small dogs payment attention to this when it happens.  Of course, when they go home (Burnaby) to roost at night, they really make a lot of noise and the flying formation that adds flocks of crows as it goes is amazing to watch.  On Saturday, March 7th, you will again have an opportunity to ride along with the crows on the Annual Twilight Crow Roost Bike Ride. The Still Moon Arts Society invites you to join them for a ride that follows the crows from the Central Valley Greenway at Garden Drive towards Burnaby for an approximately 5 km ride round trip.  Start time is 5:00 pm.

To ensure safety, organizers ask that you have lights and/or reflectors for the ride home.  This is a free family friendly event. Everyone is welcome. NOTE: Poor weather, could postpone the event. Please check Still Moon Arts Society Facebook page for any updates.
