Shorter Easier Rides

Iif you are looking for something shorter and gentler, try these two rides which repeat each month: the First Sunday ride is 28 miles total and nearly flat. The 3rd Saturday ride, also 28 miles, has some hills. Both rides have at least two leaders, one at the front, and a sweep riding at the back, so no one gets lost. Come join us on these friendly and supportive group rides.

Alex's Second Saturday Ride

Our Second Saturday all-club ride happens monthly, except in May. For details see the ASSR page.  The bridge over Pinole Creek at Alhambra Valley Road and Castro Ranch Road has been reopened. The Larghetto, Andante, and Adagio rides can use their customary routes. Redwood Road is still closed, Allegretto and Presto rides will make alternative arrangements.
