Buzzards Bay Coalition Hosting Herring Run Bike Tour

BUZZARDS BAY – The Buzzards Bay Coalition is inviting members of the public to join them for a leisurely bike ride along the Cape Cod Canal to see the spring river herring run.

This fun ride will be a unique way to view the yearly herring migration. The ride will be an “out and back” 7-mile round-trip route from Buzzards Bay Recreation Area to Herring Run Recreation Area and back.

Herring Run Recreation Area offers clear views of a fish ladder, which was built to help migrating river herring swim upstream to spawn. We recommend a stop at this spot in spring, when you can watch herring make their way up the fish ladder.

The river herring that swim up the fish ladder at Herring Run Recreation Area each spring are on their way to spawn. From here, the fish will continue through Carter Beal Conservation Area to Plymouth’s Great Herring Pond.

The free Herring Run Bike Tour will take place on Saturday, April 28th from 10:00am until 11:30am.
