Ride length: 15-20 miles
Ride pace: Moderate (10-12 mph)
Start: Berryessa VTA/BART Station parking lot (not the garage, the open lot)
There will be brief stops at our two prospective regroup spots.
These small group rides are a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, or just get out for a social ride. While you’re pedaling, we’ll count on you to help us keep an eye out for potential route hazards. Your feedback will help us adjust the route and keep all of Bike Party safe!
Things to watch out for:
– road or bike lane construction
– hazardous railroad crossings
– poorly signed lane changes
– tricky turns
– problematic regroup spots
– notable debris in the road
– dangerous traffic patterns
