Let's celebrate this Cinco de Mayo weekend with a nice flat ride followed by margaritas and lunch!
(You can just participate in the ride if you wish!)
Details: 20 flat miles, 14-16 MPH. NO SWEEPER, which means you must be responsible for yourself, your bike and keeping up! I will be leading the whole time so bring your smart phone to catch us at Chevy's if you lose the group! Estimated ride and rest stop time 2 hours.

From Emeryville, we'll cruise out to the Port of Oakland for some nice views and interesting information about the port operations. Then we'll turn northward and take Emeryville's Bicycle Blvd. and ride along the Berkeley Aquatic Park and over the fun University Street Bridge. From there, we head north along the SF Bay Trail to Golden Gate Fields and make a U-turn back along the SF-Bay Trail to Chevy's for lunch.
I've reserved a party room for up to 25. They can accommodate more or less depending on participation. No one will be excluded. I'll take a lunch head count closer to the time of the event.
Meet: 9:30am Depart: 9:45am sharp.
Activity Fee: 2.00 (covers my website and organizer fees)
Bring: CASH in small bills to pay for your meal and drinks, tax and tip. You may order drinks at the table or bar. There will only be one check, but last time they numbered the guests so we knew who ordered what. I will bring name tags to keep track of your names and numbers Also, helmet, extra tube, snacks, bottle of lytes and water.
Ole ole ole!
Note regarding parking: MacArthur BART is the closest one to Chevy's. I suggest parking at the nearby Emeryville Public Market/Hot Italian parking lot, but free parking is your responsibility! There is paid parking at the Bay Street garage. Do not park in the Chevy's parking lot until our party or you may get towed!
