Iron Horse Trail Bike Ride-Walnut Creek to Concord


Join us for an approximately 13 mile bike ride along the paved Iron Horse Trail from Walnut Creek to Concord and back. Our pace is 10 miles per hour. We do ask that you do you best to stay at the pace of the group leader. We'll stop at Panera in the Willows shopping center to take a break and enjoy a snack and/or coffee. If you are in a hurry this is probably not the ride for you.

We'll meet in the parking lot located between the Heather Farms Dog Park (to the west) and the baseball fields (to the east). Restrooms and water are available at the start and end of the ride and near the turnaround point.

We'll ride about 3/4th of a mile along the Contra Costa Canal Trail and then head north on the Iron Horse Trail. The section between Heather Farms and Pleasant Hill BART station gets crowded but opens up after that.

The ride is flat with a few bridges and underpasses and some street crossings. Total elevation gain is under 100 ft.

Please wear your helmets and bring a spare tube in case of a flat tire.

Hope you can make it.
