Winter/Spring Series #1 - Bay Bridge -- CANCELED DUE TO POSSIBLE TSUNAMI

* * * IMPORTANT:  RIDE CANCELLED DUE TO BAY AREA TSUNAMI WARNING * * *

Distance: 19.2 mi.
Elevation gain: 298 ft.
Pace: B (moderate, occasional stops)
Terrain: 1 (mostly flat, easy grades, suitable for beginners)

Meet up at 1:45 PM for a 2:00 PM ride out
GPS file, map, and cue sheet here.

We'll meet at the Lucky Duck Cafe in the Chinatown district of Oakland, a few blocks from the 12th Street BART Station, and from there, we'll ride past Lake Merritt and then on towards Emeryville and then on to the end of the Bay Bridge Trail and back, then around the Port of Oakland with a stop at Bicycle Coffee before returning to Lucky Duck Cafe.
 
We'll check the weather in the morning and if there's a 30% chance of rain or if the tsunami conditions have not abated, will cancel and let those who are registered know. (So please preregister.)

This is the 1st ride in a 2022 winter/spring series to help people gear up for late spring and summer riding, including the San Luis Obispo Wildflower ride, AIDS/LifeCycle or your first metric or century of the year, or ever! We'll have longer and more difficult rides as the series progresses. We'll ride routes all over the Bay Area. Most routes will be without a whole lot of stop signs and lights. We'll try not to ride in the rain, and there won't be a safety speech.

Don't have a car but want to come? Post a message to the Spokers forum on dssf.org and see if another member can help you out.

Meals: Bring a snack for the ride, after the ride we can grab lunch at the Lucky Duck Cafe (menu).

Sweeps? No

Is this a "no rider left behind" ride? No, but we will have a few regroups. We will keep an eye out for each other but if you are a new rider please either know the route or bring a map in case you get dropped from the group.
