Birds and Bikes compatible? You bet!
Join us for a new way to bird. Enjoy zipping along on a quiet and easy electric bike that allows you to get up close and personal with the resident and migratory birds species seen at this time of year. This nearly effortless ride allows you to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of our wetlands and beaches. The ride begins on the east side of downtown and takes you south to the Seawall. From here we continue past large lagoons and down Boddeker Road to East Beach, passing marshes, shoreline and the entrance to Galveston Bay. Traveling by this method will allow you to stop and explore the various species of birds along the way, including herons, egrets, gulls, terns, waders, seabirds, and passerines. An occasional raptor sailing above you can cap off this unique experience. Returning to the bike shop is equally as relaxing….whether you pedal or glide on your electric bike!
Driving directions will be emailed prior to FeatherFest. The Zipp E Bikes staff will show you how easy it is to use one of the bikes with quick step by step lessons and make sure you are comfortable and safe before you set out on your journey. This FeatherFest field trip is a truly unique experience for bird enthusiasts, skilled and novice alike.
