12th and Broadway, Oakland, CA
Description: This beautiful ride through the woods starts by wrapping around Lake Merritt and climbing the woodsy residential neighborhood of Glenview up to Skyline. We make a long 12 mile descent with rollers towards the end into Castro Valley for a rest stop at mile 21. Then we climb up and descend down beautiful rural Palomares Rd. onto Niles Canyon for a short distance and end up on the Alameda Creek Trail with a finish at Fremont BART.

Annual Membership Fee: 10.00 to help support my Meetup Dues and planning. Thank you .

Pace: 12-18 MPH on the flats. 10 min. wait at the top of hills to regroup. Sadly, no sweeper unless we have a volunteer who knows the route. Social Pace not a Race! We strive to be a cohesive group.
Disclaimer: There is a 2 mile portion of Niles Canyon Rd. without a shoulder. If you are uncomfortable riding in a group with some traffic please reconsider joining this ride for the safety of yourself and others!
