Orinda Ride Series
33/41/70/89 Miles, Steep Hills & Long Climbs
Meet: 6:45 AM
Ride-Out: 7:30 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.
Our 18th week is quite beautiful – and challenging. We’ll climb upper Pinehurst for a break at Sibley Park. Only water and bathrooms here, so bring plenty to snack on as our first break with food is at mile 33. We’ll head south along Skyline Drive, past the zoo, and around Lake Chabot on our way to Castro Valley. From there, we’ll head over the Dublin Grade (41-mile BART option) then head south to Pleasanton for lunch. After that, we’ll cycle through Sunol and along Hwy 84 before turning right to climb Palomares on our way back to Castro Valley. If 70 miles (and plenty of climbing) is enough, Castro Valley BART is nearby. If you’re ready for more, it’s up and over Redwood Road, lower Pinehurst, and the grade between Moraga and Orinda. Whew!
All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have route alternatives during the ride. You will have a great bike ride!
