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 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.
Century Planning Meeting -- Wed Jan 22
The next planning meeting for our 2020 Century will be Wed Jan 22, at the Sports Basement in Berkeley. Century coordinators in particular are encouraged to attend; so are all club members who want to help plan the century. Contact Jessica Jensen (email CenturyChair@grizz.org) for more info, the address, and to RSVP (required). For general info, see our Century Planning Policy. Planning meetings occur approximately once per month up to the Century.
New Bike Kit - First Designs for Clubwide Review
In case you missed it on gpc-talk (posted on Dec 8): The new bike kit committee is making slow but steady progress. One set of design proposals is now ready for the club to review and give feedback — it is here. Other design proposals and more information will be forthcoming, but the timetable is not yet known.
Mobile Ride Schedule on Apple devices
If you are using the mobile version of our ride schedule on an Apple iOS or iPadOS device, and you have added the web app to your home screen, we recommend removing it and then adding it back again. Recent updates to our app have changed the way it works on Apple products and your old icon is incompatible. For help or to ask a question, please contact .
Let our motto be your guide —
Ride to Eat and Eat to Ride!
