Pleasant Hill BART, Contra Costa Centre, CA
Ride Code: 38-B-4
You know the routine: set aside sandbagging and excuses, dress warmly, ride up Mt. Diablo with your awesome fellow Spokers to start the new year correctly.
We start at Pleasant Hill BART and take the Iron Horse and Contra Costa Canal Trails before taking back streets to North Gate Road where the ascent starts in earnest.. We’ll head up and regather at the ranger station at the Junction. Then it’s four miles to the summit where we’ll regather, do the selfie and social media thing before doing a SAFE descent on South Gate to Danville for lunch. After lunch we’ll roll easily north on Danville Blvd. to Walnut Creek BART. If you don’t want to go to the summit, you can avoid 1,700 feet of vertical by descending at the Junction.
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.
Ride Code: 24-A-3
Join us for a ‘kinder, gentler‘ Tiburon loop! Starting and ending at Mike‘s Bikes at the south end of the Mill Valley-Sausalito Path instead of in SF cuts the mileage of the Jersey Ride in half to just 24 miles. This shortened route keeps the best part--Paradise Drive and Tiburon--and ditches the moshpit on the Golden Gate Bridge and the slog up Alexander, which is always into a headwind. Yes, you can eat dessert first!
Cañada Road and Highway 92. Park on Cañada just south of 92 and look for our group.
Ride Code: 26-B-2
Our goal for the first part of this series is to do flatter rides and start building distance. It‘s hard finding flat routes in the Bay Area, and even though this ride has 1,400 feet of climbing, the grades are not all that challenging. There‘s not a single big hill to deal with on this ride.
We‘ll meet at the "top" of Cañada Road, at its intersection with Highway 92. Then we‘ll ride south through Woodside down to Portola Valley, where we‘ll have lunch at Roberts Market. Then we‘ll go back the way we came.
Ride Code: 32-B-3
Meet up at 9:15 AM for a 9:30 AM ride out
Meet at the Pescadero High School parking lot. A short ride to Highway 1, then south to the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, and a little further south after that. Then, left on Rossi Road, back on Highway 1 to cross Gazos Creek, and then up Gazos Creek Rd., Cloverdale, and up Pescadero Creek Rd. to Loma Mar for a nice lunch before heading back to the high school.
