What we’re about

Bike the Bay Cycling hosts bike rides all around the Bay Area.  Our vision is to create rides that encourage friendship, exploring the natural wonders of our beautiful Bay Area and providing a venue where fitness and good health are in focus. In 2024 we will also be providing a background on any local history or interesting facts during the ride.

Our road rides range from flat, social, brunch or happy hour rides to moderately difficult, mid- to long distance, 20-60 miles with flat-4000 feet climb. The details will be posted in each ride so you can judge whether it will suit your level of fitness. We strive to be a cohesive group!

My general no-drop policy is that we will wait at predetermined stop points (or you will wait!) for 10 minutes typically at the top of hills or major intersections. Our aim is to encourage fitness cycling but a moderate pace would be 14-18 MPH on the flats. We are planning different rides with optional mileage and elevation as well as pace rides.

Many of our rides involve hills so you'll want to make sure you and your bike is in good shape (clean and lubricated chain, plenty of life in your front and rear brake pads). Make sure that you are familiar with changing flat tires on your bike, we will assist but if it takes longer than 20-30 minutes, we will need to keep moving to our destination.  Check out our past events to see the type of rides we do. If you have a suggestion, shoot me an email and I'd be happy to add it to our calendar.

Looking forward to exploring with you all out there,
Joan B
