Come Ride With Us
Welcome! Grizzly Peak Cyclists is a bicycle club of about 600 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.
Grizzly Peak Century
Every year since 1975 we have hosted the Grizzly Peak Century. The 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 on the first Sunday in May.
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.
GPC members are invited to join our Strava club. For more information see our member benefits page.
Holiday Party Wednesday December 9
In December, we have a holiday party instead of a general club meeting. This year the party will be at Faz, 1111 Broadway in downtown Oakland, near 12th Street BART, on December 9 from 6:30 p.m. to around 9:30 p.m. There will be a buffet dinner. The cost is $37 per person, or $22 if you volunteered and helped at the 2015 Century. A member may bring a non-member guest. Deadline for receipt of payment is December 4. Full details including on-line payment and links to the menu and an optional mail-in form are at https://www.grizz.org/db/h/HolidayDinner.php.
If you ordered GPC Voler bike clothing in August, it is now (Oct 01) available for pickup. To make your pickup arrangements, contact Melarie Johnson at.
We have revamped our Cue Sheet Library and promoted it to the top level menu above with the new name Routes. All of the cue sheets and maps are still there, but now you can browse them grouped by region. You can also sort, filter, and search for routes meeting particular criteria. As before, you are invited to submit routes in electronic form to.
For a limited time, you can still browse our legacy website, but remember it is not being maintained, so information there may be obsolete. Address comments to .
Let our motto be your guide —
Ride to Eat and Eat to Ride!
