This classic hilly, 24.5 mile loop starts and ends at Orinda BART, with 2,000 feet of climbing. We'll take it clockwise for a good long warmup before tackling the three hills.
The standard loop route is available here, starting and ending at the Orinda BART station: https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/2417863996
An optional, longer route is also available (31 miles and 2,800 feet) for those who want to bike back over the hills and end at the Downtown Berkeley BART station: https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/2417867773
Bring your own working bike and helmet, any water and snacks you may need on the ride, sunscreen, money for BART and lunch (or bring your lunch with you), and good spirits!
We roll out promptly at 9:15am, so be there by 9:00 to sign in and meet everyone.
Rain cancels or postpones. Register to let us know you're coming and be sure you get any last-minute updates.
