Each spring millions of monarch butterflies leave the mountains of Central Mexico, where they survived the winter, to begin their annual migration north. This spring they are accompanied by cyclist Sara Dykman (age 32) from Kansas who is biking 10,000 miles from the monarch overwintering colonies in Mexico to Canada …and back... with the butterflies. Or as Dykman would say, “Butterbiking with the butterflies.”

Dykman will be making a stop at the Royal Botanical Gardens to present about her adventure. She welcomes folks to come learn about the monarch migration, see her gear, and learn how biking 10,000 miles with butterflies is possible.
