STOCKTON - The third annual Mayor’s Hike and Bike event is set for Saturday, May 28 at 8:30 a.m., starting and finishing at the University of Pacific’s DeRosa University Center, 901 Presidents Drive in Stockton. This "adventure event" is designed to get Stocktonians up and moving - whether walking, hiking or biking!
The event offers three bicycling courses, two of them along the Calaveras Bike Path. The bike trail "westerly route" is 9.3 miles out to Buckley Cove park on the Stockton Deep Water Channel, the other "easterly route" is 7.6 miles in length. The walking route offers walkers (and, bicyclists, too, if they desire) a pleasant, shaded route south through Stockton’s mid-town historical housing district, to the Stockton Ports Baseball Park, a round-trip of 4.3 miles.
