This meetup group is for bay area cyclists who are also interested in startups and technology! Since cycling is a great way to meet new people - I thought it fitting to help host bay area bike rides for people who are in the tech industry (or people who are merely interested in startups / tech).
I'll let members of this group propose new ride plans - and will try to organize a ride at least once a month. On average, I expect the rides for this meetup group will be a bit less intense than those of the Bay Area Cycling meetup: http://www.meetup.com/BayAreaCycling/
There are many variables involved in finding the right ride for your experience level but here's the short-hand:
Easy rides are usually less than 10 miles and involve less than 500 foot hill climb
Average rides are 10 - 30 miles and involve less than 1,500 foot hill climb
Difficult rides are 30 - 100 miles and involve hill climbs over 1,500 feet
