Come Ride With Us
Welcome! Grizzly Peak Cyclists is a bicycle club of about 750 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 available on this website. Our members' riding interests run the gamut. We have novices, intermediates, advanceds, and everything in between. Our rides are correspondingly diverse.
Come ride with us. 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. You do not have to be a member to attend our rides, but if you're ready, you can join now!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.
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.

Register your Bikes!
Register all of your bikes for free at Bike Index. It's a non-profit national database that is effective and easy to use. In its simplest form you just need your email address and the serial number for your bike. For better results you can add details about the bike, including photos. If your bike is stolen, return to Bike Index and report it.
Please don't ever buy a used bike without first checking the serial number on Bike Index. If it is listed as stolen, you can provide information to assist in the recovery.
If your bike (registered or not) is stolen, try these steps to get it back.
Let our motto be your guide —
Ride to Eat and Eat to Ride!
