Grizzly Peak Cyclists

Come Ride With Us

Welcome! Grizzly Peak Cyclists is a bicycle club of about 650 members based in Berkeley, California.

We have club rides every weekend throughout the year, and many weekdays too. Roughly half our rides are in the East Bay; the rest are all over the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. Our ride calendar is posted every month on this website and in our newsletter. Our members' riding interests run the gamut. We have novices, intermediates, advanceds, and everything in between. Our rides are correspondingly diverse.

Anyone is welcome on our rides. Each ride is rated to indicate the expected terrain, pace, and distance, so you can choose a ride suited to your abilities. Be sure to review our rider guidelines before your first ride to avoid any surprises. Advance signup is not necessary, but feel free to contact a ride's leader in advance with any questions.


Every year, we make significant donations out of the proceeds raised from our Grizzly Peak Century to organizations and causes that promote or help bicycling in some way — be it advocacy, safety, education, awareness, or the bicycling environment. See our donations page for details.

New website goes live

We deployed this new version of our website in mid March 2015. We have tried to provide everything you need to learn about our club and participate in it. For a limited time, you can still browse our legacy website, but remember it is no longer being maintained, so information there may be obsolete. If you have comments, please write to webmaster at grizz dot org.


2015 Grizzly Peak Century

Another successful Grizzly Peak Century was held on Sunday, May 3, 2015. Thanks to all our volunteers and riders!

The annual event is known for its challenging but beautiful terrain and gourmet home-made food. For more information, see our century website. We hope to see you there next year.
