Ride ID 2193

Ride-Out: 9:30 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 3rd week of the Sunday Orinda Ride Series takes us back to Hercules via “The Bears” of Bear Creek Road, an 8-mile stretch of road on which you are either climbing or descending. Some of the climbs are long, others are short, and some are steeper than others. We’ll then head out Alhambra Valley Road and Pinole Valley Road to Starbucks in Hercules. We’ll head back via Castro Ranch Road and San Pablo Dam Road on our way back to Orinda.

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.
