King Tide bikes at Pleasure Point

Our roundup of events is lighter than usual this weekend, with traditional holiday events taking center stage.

Also sharing the spotlight is Mother Nature and the California King Tides. No, that’s not a band name (that we know of). Extreme high and low tides are coming this Saturday and Sunday—with the extreme lows providing perfect tidepooling conditions.
