Come Ride With Us
Welcome! Grizzly Peak Cyclists is a bicycle club of about 500 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 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
We have hosted the annual Grizzly Peak Century since 1975. The event is known for its challenging but beautiful terrain and gourmet home-made food. For more information, click on the button above to 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.

Groups Rides have Resumed
With a majority of respondents to our member interest survey indicating an interest in club rides, and with state and local Shelter-In-Place orders easing restrictions on outdoor and group activities, the board has voted to resume club rides, with new restrictions. Read our Group Ride COVID-19 Protocol. Ride leaders are now welcome to post rides.
Water and Restrooms Map
Many Bay Area jurisdictions have turned off drinking fountains and/or closed public restrooms as part of their Covid prevention measures. See this Google Map for current status of many facilities in our riding areas. The map was developed by the Western Wheelers Bicycle Club. To contribute to the map, send your observations to .
