Store Sponsored Rides
Tuesdays - Road
Meet at the Niles Canyon Staging area for Alameda Creek trail at 5:20 am and returns by 6:30/6:45 am.  This is an easy, flat ride about 23 miles, and is basically an out and back ride along Alameda Creek trail.

Tuesdays - MTB
On Tuesday mornings we ride Garin Park (Union City/Hayward Hills).  We meet at the trail head near Dry Creek Apartments at 6:00 am.  Dry Creek Apartments are located on Mission Blvd in Union City at the Whipple intersection.  This ride includes some good climbs and can be challenging even for experienced riders.  However beginners are welcome.  We take our time on this ride so no one is left behind.

Wednesdays/Fridays - Road
Our road rides are on Wednesday and Friday mornings, leaving from our store at 5:45 am sharp and returning by 6:45 am.   This is an easy, flat ride, about a 15 mile loop.  Pace varies depending on riders attending but usually between 15-18 mph.  Beginners welcome.

Thursdays - MTB
On Thursday mornings we ride up Mission Peak leaving from the South entrance of Ohlone College at 7:15 am and coming off the hill about 8:30 am.  We take the Ohlone-side trail to the top.  This ride is for experienced/ intermediate riders.  The climb up Mission Peak has some single track but is mostly fire road and can be steep.  Bring plenty of water.

Sunday - Way Too Early Road Ride
Sunday mornings we meet at 5am or 5:30am depending on route decided.  This is a more challenging fast paced ride for experienced cyclists.  Meet at the corner of Mission Blvd and Niles Canyon.  Plan for a 2-2.5 hour ride.   It is a must to call or text James (see number below) if you plan to attend this ride as things are usually decided the night before. plan for a 35-45 mile ride.

Helmets are required for all shop rides.  
Please call or text James at 510-304-5300 for latest inf. on each ride.  Sometimes rides may be cancelled or altered due to weather or ride leader availability.
