Alex's Second Saturday Ride

Our Second Saturday all-club ride happens monthly, except in May. For details see the ASSR page.  All the road closures that affected our routes as a result of the 2017 storms have been reopened. 

Shorter Easier Rides

If you are looking for something shorter and gentler, try these two rides which repeat each month: the First Sunday ride is 28 miles total and nearly flat. The 3rd Saturday ride, also 28 miles, has some hills. Both rides have at least two leaders, one at the front, and a sweep riding at the back, so no one gets lost. Come join us on these friendly and supportive group rides.

 Ride Schedule for March 2019

Not finding the ride you are looking for? There is a simple solution for that. Any GPC member can lead a ride. See the Lead Rides section for all the information you need to get started. Our Ride Coordinator will be happy to help you choose a ride, create the listing, and prepare to lead.

This schedule is also available in a format for smartphones and other mobile devices.

FRI MAR 1 1/T/19 * Cycling along the Iron Horse Regional Trail
Leader: Maria Teresa Garcia De La Noceda     (510) 725-8405
Meet at 9:15 am
Start Location: Pleasant Hill BART

The weather forecast predicts partially sunny skies for this Friday, thus please join us on this cycling journey along the Iron Horse Regional Trail, and Danville Blvd to Peet's. From Pleasant Hill BART we will go to Danville, passing through the cities of Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, and Alamo.

The Iron Horse Regional Trail is a rail trail, a conversion of a disused railway track into a multi-use path, typically for walking, horse riding and bicycling. And Danville Blvd. is a very pleasant street with a very wide shoulder.

The landscape changes as we cycle from one city to the next. We will have different regroups along the way, and a lunch stop in Danville, at Peet's, a nice location with chairs, benches, and some eateries close by. We will return via the Iron Horse Trail.

This ride is co-sponsored with the Bicycle Section of the Sierra Club.

Leader: Maria Teresa Garcia De La Noceda     (510) 725-8405
Leader: Thomas Ayres     (510) 295-8228
Meet at 9:00 am
Start Location: Pleasant Hill BART

According to the Wikepedia, “Mount Diablo is sacred to many California Native American people; according to Miwok mythology, and Ohlone mythology, Mt Diablo was the point of creation”. Its magnetism is still felt today, specially among hikers, and cyclists; this may be explained also by looking into its volcanic origin, since the upper portion of the mountain is made up of volcanic and sedimentary deposits.

The Ascent involves a steep climb, 6 ½ miles up to the Junction, therefore you need to feel comfortable about climbing, confident about descending, at ease with your bike.

Today, captivated for its majestic magnetism, we are going to start our bike ride from Pleasant Hill BART, and via some quiet, and flat residential streets we will arrive to North Gate Rd., where we will initiate our climb to the "Magic Mountain". At the Junction, we will REGROUP, and rest.

Then, we will turn around, and descend, retracing our steps, and stopping at the Ygnacio Valley Shopping Center, at 1881 Ygnacio Valley Rd., in Walnut Creek, to have some lunch … There are a variety of cuisines to choose from.

MEET: In front of the Pleasant Hill BART, at the fountain, at 9:00am SHARP; there is a San Francisco train arriving, at 8:50am

EVENT CO-ORGANIZED: With the Bicycle Section of the Sierra Club
