BTCEB Gala Ride

  • Mar 8, 2014 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay invites you to our monthly Gala Ride. We meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month for a casually paced social group ride at one of the many great parks in the area. This is a 'no-drop' group ride (we won't leave you behind or let you get lost).

Rides generally last 2 to 3 hours and are great opportunities to meet other East Bay mountain bikers at your skill level and to discover the best trails without having to do it on your own.

Rides are free and open to the public and led by experienced local mountain bikers familiar with the trails.

Groups for ALL skill levels!

Skill Building Beginner Group (C): The group starts off slow, and tapers back from there!
Relaxed Intermediate Group (B): We stop to regroup and enjoy the view once in a while.
Fast Paced/Advanced Group (A): You'll get a chance to catch your breath, every now and then.

We start gathering at 9:00am and hit the trails promptly at 9:30am. Join us for refreshments and snacks after the ride.

Please note: There is a $5 parking fee (or $3 day use fee if you park at the side of San Pedro Road). The pay station accept credit cards or exact change.

As we are currently in the winter riding season, inclement weather can result in the Gala being postponed. As such, BTCEB will confirm via email the status of the ride by 5pm Friday before the Gala.

    Awesome A Group ride today. Thanks Josh for leadin'. That last steep technical rutted & rooted descent was fricken sweet. I felt invigerated and woke me up to tail you on that last cruise around the loop back. Between you today & Neal last Oct. I think I've traversed all there is.
