Wine Country Community Bike Ride - Livermore Teaser Scenic Route
27 miles with +/- options
Cherry City Cyclists and Bike Walk San Leandro will be leading a relaxed-paced no-drop community bike ride around the Livermore Valley. We will meet on the Pleasanton side of the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station. This route will feature a scenic route on several bike paths and pass a number of wineries. We will highlight Wente Winery on Arroyo, Wente Winery on Tesla and Concannon Winery.
Meet on the Pleasanton side of the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station:
9:30am - Meet & Greet
9:45am - Sign-in/Route options details/Group ride etiquette review
10am - Start rolling!
If this is your first time on BART with your bike or you just want the company, meet at the San Leandro BART platform at 9:00 a.m. We will ride the train together to the Dublin/Pleasanton Station. Reminder, the train waits for no one. Double check the BART schedule as arrival and departures are subject to change.
The full loop with regroups is approximately 3 hours or 27 miles +/- on mostly flat terrain with 2 doable moderate climbs with photo opportunities. There will be an optional shortcut for anyone who wants a shorter distance (22 miles +/-). A suggested route will be offered for those wanting to extend the ride beyond 27 miles.
The ride will end at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.
Bring water, snacks and money. Bring a lock if interested in a post ride meal at Persimmon Place, 1 mile from BART. Upon arriving, you will have a selection of eateries.
All bikes welcome. Please make sure your bike is in good working order. Helmets required.RSVP on Facebook
