Bike there

Is one parent coming and the other parent, or a friend,  taking care of the kids?  Consider making it a family biking day.  Click here and be inspired by photos of riding in the Fort Ord vicinity.  When you say adios to the person who’s attending the lecture, the kids and the other adult can enjoy miles of Class I (off-road) bike/multi-use path nearby.

You may wish to review the California Bicycle Laws and Personal Safety Tips.  If attending the evening lecture, click here for tips on biking in the dark.

Where to park your bike at Stilwell Center

You may park your bike on the patio at the rear of the Stilwell Center.  (There are no bike racks or appropriate poles to lock up your bike.)

How to reach the patio?  When you arrive at the entrance to Stilwell Center (corner of Gigling Rd and Gen Jim Moore Blvd), bike straight about 150 feet.  The entrance to the patio is on the right, past 4-5 storage sheds.

The patio is gated and enclosed.  Please close gate behind you.  If the gate is locked, you may walk your bike through the ballroom to reach the patio.
