Classic MTB ride with ridges and views. Nothing too technical except some steep descents. First portion is paved and popular with hikers. Then we enter the Tilden Park grasslands. At the bottom of the hill, we can replenish our water supply. Bring all your own snacks and sandwiches.

Other Meetup Bike Groups will be joining us.

We'll stop at Peace Grove Overlook with 360 degree views of the Bay and Mt. Diablo. It's not too out of the way but may require some walking of the bikes. I've hiked there many times and it's not far off the Nimitz Trail.

I have a general sketch of the ride, but there are many trails and options. The route I have is about 11 miles.

There are bathrooms at the Trailhead and at the midpoint.

Meet: 9:30 AM Roll: 9:45 AM

Parking: There is a parking lot, but it fills quickly. Try to get a spot on the road. Arrive early!

Annual Meetup Fee: 10.00 to help support my Meetup Organization Dues and planning. Thanks.
