SF Bay Trail Brunch Ride: Oakland (MacArthur BART) to Pt. Richmond

This 30 mile flat (two small hills, into Emeryville and at Golden Gate Fields) round trip ride will go the entire length of the SF Bay Trail into Point Richmond for our main stop, Little Louie's Deli and Cafe where we can sit on their (sunny?) deck in back. BYO, buy food there or just have an iced latte!

Highlights include great views of the SF Bay, Costco (haha,) the interesting Port of Richmond and the 1930 glass Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant (largest to be built on the west coast) now home to light industry and manufacturing. There is a lot of history there. Point Richmond is a quaint, quiet little hamlet not too well known.

The trail is paved and the roads are quiet and bike-friendly with very few stoplights. The parks we pass have water and restrooms.

The entire trip will likely take 3.5-4 hours with the stops. Approx. 10-12 MPH

I'm cross posting with Berkeley Bicycling Meetup Group http://www.meetup.com/berkeleycyclists/events/109773432/ and Biking+Dining SF http://www.meetup.com/Biking-Dining-SF/events/109772842/ .

We will meet in front of MacArthur BART at 9:00 AM near the parking lot entrance. Look for the "woman with the orange bike." No, actually, I'll be riding a flat-bar dark red one :) Franny

    Another beautiful day and great views as we biked along the coast. Many thanks to Franny for organizing and Marcus for performing the unsung hero role of sweeper. Enjoyed everyone and everything...even the mix-up at the dog park. Thanks to everyone who attended... a very nice group

    Hi guys and girls. Please make sure your RSVP is current. Of course last minute things come up, but no-shows will be go on record. If something does come up, leave a message here. I'm supposed to take attendance. Looking forward to a nice ride; weather is supposed to be 70! I just finished a fast, hilly 50 miler today, so I'm ready to go at a more relaxed pace!

    Love the scenery on this ride. Of course, everything looks better when I'm on a bike.

    Ahh, we would be able to make it the 24th, but not the 31st. So it goes! We're going to Mercey Hot Springs Easter Weekend since we can't make it with the group the following weekend because of the Cinderella ride. Competing bike rides. : /
