as I’m always eager to check out a new route, I scanned the Grizzly Peak Cyclists’ extensive archive of cue sheets and picked out a themed ride (I’m a sucked for these): the Tour of Five Canyons.
“Happy Trails To You” is a mostly flat, scenic route that circles the bay and includes 6 trails through the course of the ride: Stevens Creek; Bay Trail, Coyote Hills; Alameda Creek; Coyote Creek; Guadalupe River.
There’s a section of the I-580, just before you cross the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, where cyclists can ride along the shoulder of the highway. I’ve always wondered why anyone would brave this busy little stretch of road, so I did a little research and found out that you can pedal to Pt. Molate.
My CX team vive le tarte + Cykel dominated at the first race of the East Bay Cyclocross Series today! Heath won the men’s race, while Bridget won the women’s.
A caffeinated ride in the East Bay!
