Berryessa Community Center (park at the eastern end of the lot, towards the park).
Distance: ~44 miles
Ride Leader: Stephen Shirreffs, Roger Sayre
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).
Ride Code: 33-B-3
Elevation gain: 3,300 ft.
A tasty mixed surface ride with views, dirt roads, flowers, beaches and a walk through a horse stable! 40% of the ride is dirt and much of the rest is protected bike lane or slow streets! There is some single track and a few moderately technical sections (no shame in walking those). We will be stopping at the tops of big climbs and the bottoms of descents to regroup (i.e. for me to catch my breath).
Ride Code: 5 or more - B - 1 to 2
Elevation gain: TBD
There aren’t many better ways to start the day than being on your bike. Come join the early bird crew for a bitty spin to start your day. We’ll begin at Philz in the Castro and work our way through Golden Gate Park and maybe further if the riders feel like it. We can expect anything from a gorgeous silver sunrise over the city, to being engulfed by a navy grey shroud of fog, and anything in-between.
Peets 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!
Not a ride, but the fabulous HOLIDAY party! Join your fellow biking buddies for some holiday cheer! This year’s get-together will be hosted by Stephen S. at his home just north of the Castro.
