Route Planning Resources
The resources on this page are useful for members planning to lead GPC rides and for anyone planning his or her own rides.
East Bay Planning Maps
The following East Bay maps have been produced by the generous contributions of club members. They show the most popular bike roads and connecting routes, plus mileages and BART stations — and omit extraneous roads. They are all in pdf format.
Berkeley Area Master Map. Base map for rides in the Berkeley-Oakland hills: north to the Bears, east to Lafayette, and south to the Oakland Zoo.
East Bay Master Map, North. Base map for rides in the East Bay: north to the Carquinez Strait, east to Morgan Territory, and south to Pleasanton.
East Bay Master Map, South. Base map for rides in the East Bay: Dublin, Livermore, Del Puerto, Mt. Hamilton.
The source files for all three maps plus an obsolete ASSR map are in Microsoft Powerpoint format. You can download a zip file containing all four source files. If you can improve the maps, please send your revised powerpoint files to webmaster at grizz dot org.
