Hercules Starbucks via San Pablo Dam Road Out-n-Back
31 Miles Rolling Hills And Steep Climbs
Ride ID 2192
Meet: 9:00 AM
Ride-Out: 10:00 AM
Welcome to the Sunday Orinda Ride Series. We are an all-pace/all-skill training program. We invite everyone – from novice to speedy – to join us. This years series is a late start/shortened training season, which means we will increase mileage just a little faster in the beginning to get caught up with everyone else.
The 2nd week of this series takes us out to Hercules with an out-and-back route. We’ll head out San Pablo Dam Road, turn onto Castro Ranch Road (and climb that steep little hill), then onto Pinole Valley Road on our way to Starbucks in Hercules. Never been to Hercules — on your bike? Come give it spin. Since this is an out-and-back route, you can turn back at any point in the ride if you don’t feel ready for 30 miles just yet.

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!
Reach out with any of your questions or concerns. You really can do this.
