Calaveras County Arts Council is proud to present Ride & Walk4 Art, a bicycle ride and walk to raise funds for the Arts in Education program. This year, the annual fundraiser has a new venue: West Calaveras County. Cyclists from all over Northern California will pedal through Valley Springs past Camanche, New Hogan, and Pardee lakes while walkers hike Hogan Dam Trail. The $30/bicyclist and $20/walker entry fee includes a Chicken-in-a-Barrel lunch prepared by the Tri-Dam lions and there will be an on-site show featuring local artists.
Have fun for the arts!
Rob Williams (photo below, center) is unabashedly a champion of bicycling, the arts, and West Calaveras County. That’s why this year, as chairman and chief organizer of Calaveras County Arts Council’s Ride & Walk4Art, he decided to move the event, scheduled for Sunday, March 18, from San Andreas to West Calaveras County.

“We wanted to showcase the three lakes—Pardee, Camanche, and New Hogan—in the West County,” he said. “The roads are the most popular cycling routes in Calaveras and Amador Counties, and the New Hogan Trail is a very popular trail for residents and for people from out of town.”
