Come join a few of us as we have a mellow roll through Golden Gate Park, along the Great Highway, around Lake Merced and back. The route is approximately 15 miles with ~500 feet of climbing.
Clothing layers for variable conditions, water, a bicycle in reasonable condition, a helmet, a tire repair kit (just in case!), and have at least a modest amount of experience riding on streets with traffic in the city. You may want snacks. We may add a cafe visit at the end of the ride.
Distance: 15 miles
Total elevation: 500 ft.
Come join us for this East Bay classic before the annual Fall Social. Leaving Phil Bokovoy‘s house we wind through Berkeley and up through Tilden Park, then out and around San Pablo and Briones reservoirs to climb the Three Bears before climbing back up Wildcat Canyon to return to Phil‘s, hungry and ready for turkey and the potluck!
Ride Code: 38-B-3
Starting at Phil‘s home, we will head to the Bay Trail and take the trail along the Bay passing by the Pt. Isabel Dog Park, the former Kaiser Liberty Shipyards with monuments to Rosie the Riveter and the Ford Motor Company plant where thousand of tanks were built for World War II. Come enjoy a splendid ride with great views, before the fabulous BBQ turkey and potluck!
Ride Code: 24-A-1
Come enjoy the fall weather and our annual Fall Social hosted by Phil Bokovoy at his home in Berkeley. There will be two ride options before the Social: a longer ride that begins at 9 am and a shorter ride that begins at 9:30 am. After the rides (1:30-2:00 pm) Phil will serve his awesome BBQ turkey (veggie burger options as well.) The Club will provide drinks. Come for one of the rides only, come for the Social only, or come for BOTH!
Peet's Coffee in the Castro (16th and Market Streets)
This is the official monthly club ride for all members (guests are always welcome). The ride offers different distance and level options where once a month all DSSF club members can get out, ride and socialize with the club. The ride starts from Peet‘s in the Castro. There are three options so you can go at your own pace and distance so please pick the appropriate option to your level of ability, we want to make sure you enjoy the day. The rides split and regroup in Tiburon where we have lunch together as a group. This ride is usually on the second Saturday of each month.
Pleasant Hill BART Station
This ride is perfect for the newer recreational cyclist or for those who prefer shorter or flat rides. This is a shorter version of a club favorite, BART to BART, but starting at Pleasant Hill BART rather than Concord. The route is almost entirely on the Iron Horse Trail, the car-free multi-use path that runs from Concord all the way to Dublin. We’ll stop about half-way at Peets in Danville for a bathroom & snack break before continuing down to Dublin for lunch at Khyber Pass Kabob (omnivore and vegetarian but not vegan). Afterwards it’s a short hop to Dublin BART where you may end your ride by taking BART back home after 21 miles. If you are interested in more, we’ll be turning around to continue back the way we came to Pleasant Hill BART.

Ride Leader: David Gaus
It‘s time for the club‘s traditional and fabulous ride up Mount Hamilton! Enjoy the fall colors, cool weather, and fantastic scenery. The climb is a constant 5-6% grade for about 18 miles (not difficult, but loooong).
