Carquinez Scenic Route – Sprouts
50.5 Miles, Rolling Hills & Steep Climbs
Ride ID: 2174
Meet: 7:30 AM
Ride-Out: 8:00 AM
Heavy Rain Cancels
Welcome to the Saturday East Bay training series! This series is designed as slow ramp-up starter series for new riders but welcomes riders at all skill levels, including those who haven’t ridden a bike in years and those who may be recovering from injuries.
The Carquinez Loop is a longtime Wildcat favorite. This week we do one giant loop, with no easy bailout options, and a fair amount of climbing. We will ride through Moraga and Lafayette before climbing the backside of Reliez Valley Road on our way to Martinez for our first real rest stop at Starbucks. From there we ride through Crockett and Rodeo before heading to Sprouts in Pinole for lunch. We finish our day climbing Castro Ranch and San Pablo Dam roads on our way back to Orinda BART. Those looking for an extra challenge are free to go off route and ride back along The Bears instead of taking Castro Ranch.
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!
