New Year's Day Calaveras Road Ride - 50 & 30 mile options
Calaveras Road has been closed for a long time but is scheduled to reopen on New Year's Day. Nice ride, will be really nice to have this road back in the mix of ride options. If for some reason the road is still closed, we'll ride Kilkare Rd. to the end (also a nice riding road). Two starting spot options: 1. West Dublin - Pleasanton BART = 47 mile ride - Roll-out at 9:30 AM 2. Sunol = 30 mile ride - ready to ride 10:15-10:30 AM Route: Pace: 14-15 mph when on flat ground, faster/slower if downhill/uphill BART station starters meet in the parking lot at Stoneridge Mall directly across from southern exit of the West Dublin - Pleasanton BART Station.

What we're about

Established in July of 2013, the purpose of BARC is to form a community of recumbent cycling enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay Area who enjoy riding with others on occasion and riding in a variety of locales.

The ride calendar is comprised of rides that Event Organizers create. Send a message to Organizer (Russell) if you want to be added as an Event Organizer. An introduction to hosting a ride guide can be found here ( Assistance for new Event Organizers is available, contact Russell.

Cycling is a sporting activity known to pose risks to your person and/or property. Cycling with a group may increase some of these risks. Members and ride leaders (i.e. event hosts) are not certified experts in cycling or cycling safety.

To request a BARC membership:

1. Read and understand the Limits of Liability (

2. Click: Request to Join button, answer the three questions then submit

Note: If you don't own a recumbent cycle, no worries, we don't require members to own a recumbent. All pedal-powered cycles are welcome, including e-assisted cycles. This is not a group for cycles that are powered solely by a motor.
