Would be great to get another long ride in before Aug. 9th, so I'm proposing this Saturday, Orinda BART to Danville, to Dublin Blvd to Castro Valley and back to Orinda via Redwood Rd. and Lower Pinehurst (about 60 miles). It's under 3,000' of climbing and has two BART stations along the route for those who prefer a shorter ride. I won't be doing this unless I get any takers, so please RSVP.

    I didn't plan for bike paths. I know some exist, but I'm not really familiar with them. I would say, however, that Redwood Rd/Pinehurst have very limited traffic once you leave Castro Valley.

    Russ is this all street or road rides or is there a portion on bike trails? Eric

      Eric, this is a ride Judy posted (I will set her as the event host), I'm just going along for the ride. Although I've probably ridden all the paths/roads the route may take, I do not know the exact route Judy is planning. It is safe for me to say that it will be primarily or all road. Perhaps a small portion of the ride will include bike paths.

    BTW, if Sunday is better, that would work instead.

      Since Christine can only do Saturday, let's make this ride Saturday 8:30.

      That would sure be great.

    There are a couple of parking lots at the station. In order to best guarantee that we all find each other, may I suggest meeting at the same place we have in the past when we've done a ride starting at Orinda BART? The GPS coordinates where we've met before is:[masked], [masked]

    Change to Satellite View for best view of meeting spot.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
