Celebrate Bastille Day with a truly epic bike ride - all the way around San Francisco Bay - in one day!
This route is tested! We rode this on Dec 28, 2012 and nothing went wrong. Very scenic - lots of SF Bay views.
This route shows a San Jose start and end - but you can start wherever you want! I'm starting at my apartment! We'll stop and pick up riders at the following locations:
San Jose Caltrain Station: 5:15 am
Lytton Plaza, Palo Alto: 6:45 am
Ferry Building, San Francisco: 9:45 am
Lake Merritt Columns (Grand & Lakeshore): around 5 or 6 pm
We'll stop at Front Room at the Wharf (295 Mare Island Way, Vallejo) for lunch.
San Jose. Palo Alto. San Francisco. Marin. Vallejo. Oakland. Alameda. All this and more - free of charge - no public transit!
This is a long ride - be prepared. Bring lights, tools to fix flats, and plenty of food and water. Expect to cruise at a pace of about 15 mph on flats.
