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.
