Flat and Hilly Post-Thanksgiving Loop (Berkeley Hills-Ohlone Greenway Path)

Details:  ~26 miles,  16-18 MPH on flats, ~ 2000 feet elevation gain. 10 min. wait max at the top of hills.  

Rest Stop:   Beautiful Cragmont Park in the Berkeley Hills

Meet: 9:15 AM  Depart 9:30 AM sharp

We'll start at North Berkeley BART and travel along the newly re-paved Ohlone Greenway before ascending to Arlington Blvd., a nice 6 mile road with moderate climb and rollers.  Depending on the weather, we may get views.  We'll then climb up Spruce St. in Berkeley to ride along Grizzly Peak to Claremont for a quick descent and follow bicycle-friendly roads back to BART.


Bring: Tube, pump, two bottles water/lytes, snacks, helmet and food! There will be no food stops along the way as this is a short ride.

Rain or drizzle cancels.

    Great ride Franny! It was challenging given my out-of-shape self, but I enjoyed it immensely (including ALL the hills :) I forgot how much of an ass-kicker Arlington is! :)

    And folks who had lunch post-ride, I really enjoyed your company and hope to see you all on another ride, either w/ this group or w/ NorCal Cycle Touring group!!!

    Come to the party on Tuesday and learn about the awesomeness of bike-touring!!! :)

    Lots of fun! A little more elevation change than I expected; would have wore my clipless shoes in retrospect.

    Thanks to all for coming out on this shorter, sweet, hilly meandering ride through the East Bay Hills. Nice to meet you and as always see some of you again. Sorry about the steep 2 blocks of Marin! It was what I knew to be certain at the time. Ride and learn! Come out to Marin in 2 weeks! See you soon.

    Hello Cyclists~I'm looking forward to gorgeous weather for a spin tomorrow. Please bring all the food, snacks and drink you'll need for this ride, as there will only be a park stop with a restroom. We can veer off track downhill/uphill a little if anyone needs water refills, but try to bring enough, 2-3 full bottles should suffice, one with electrolytes. Some riders from Bike the Bay will be joining us. See you in the AM.

    Hi cyclists, it goes without saying that the start time is 9:15 AM not PM as previously shown. Shanna pointed this error out. Hope all had a great Thanksgiving~

    Hi Franny. Take 2. Maybe with that handy photo of the BART station I'll actually get to the right one to meet you for the ride. Love to climb. See you Sunday.
