What we're about

You don't need to be an avid cyclist to ride with us, nor do you need to be in tip-top shape. We meet to have fun and enjoy the ride. We also meet to learn more about ebikes from other ebikers and spread the word about ebikes by being an example on the road.

We only ride between 15 and 19 mph on all the rides. Most members’ bikes have Class 1 ebikes that, in keeping with CA state law, contain governors in their computers which keep them from going over 20 miles an hour. EBIKETREKS rides are usually 33 miles long or less, since many members have only one battery with a 35 mile range. California's E-BIKE LAW states "With an e-bike, bicyclists can ride more often, farther, and for more trips."

EBIKETREKS regularly ride events designed to enjoy, test and learn about what our bikes can do. We are usually trying to explore a new place while enjoying the best paved bike paths and bike lanes that California has to offer. We frequently repeat the rides we like.

We ride around the San Francisco Bay area and sometimes beyond. We've driven to destinations then ride in Tahoe, Calistoga and Monterey and have plans for Yosemite, Santa Barbara and even Death Valley. And places you suggest.

You also don't need to own your own ebike. If you don't have one, or someone you'd like to bring as a guest doesn't have an ebike, there are several bike stores in the Bay Area that offer day rentals on ebikes.

Del Valle Reservoir in Livermore-No Cars-Only Ebike Trails-Monday

7000 Del Valle Rd

I added a second ride at Del Valle on Monday, for those on the waiting list, or for those that prefer Monday. Note that I will be camping at Del Valle campground Sunday and Monday nights. If anyone wants to join up for camping as well, there should be plenty of spots this time of year. I will be at an RV site with hook-ups, so I will have electrical power for heat. I will also have my new satellite internet system going, so everyone can connect to the internet via my hotspot.
