This is the first training ride in a multi-ride series leading up to the 2016 California Climate Ride (May 22-26). Everyone is welcome to join us for this ride, whether you are planning on participating in the Climate Ride or not.
All participants will need to bring their own working bike and helmet, as well as 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 will start at MacArthur BART, take a mellow ride through Emeryville and onto the Bay Bridge path towards Yerba Buena Island, return to the Bay Trail and follow it through Berkeley, El Cerrito and Richmond. We will finish up with a lunch stop at the Rosie the Riveter Museum in Richmond. Richmond BART is a mile from the museum and a good option for returning home.
This ride is a good way to meet other people going on the Climate Ride, ask questions about what to expect on the ride, as well as test out your bike and equipment in a flat, urban setting before heading out on one of our future rides where we will encounter more elevation and fewer amenities.
***Ride will be canceled in the event of rain***
