Welcome! The VeloRaptors are a social group of cyclists based out of Montclair, Oakland. We offer regular rides on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday open to many experience levels and make sure to include a coffee/snack stop along the way. The majority of our rides are 30 miles or less, but we also have a group that enjoys planning longer, more challenging rides.

Oregon Ride Preview

Hello, Raptors!

Last year 5 fellow Veloraptors and I took a week-long cycling trip in Utah with Black Sheep Adventures, a San Leandro-based adventure sport company founded and run by former Backroads guide (and terrific fellow) Fred Ackerman.

The experience was fabulous—wonderful routes, lodging, organization, guides, and at a reasonable price considering all that was included. It felt like a Backroads trip without the high-end accommodations and exorbitant cost.

At my request, Fred has put together a trip for the Veloraptors in central Oregon and the Oregon Coast. The trip would be from October5 -October 10, 2014. There would be 5 riding days plus either a rest or optional ride day, and the distances would be typically 40-60 miles a day with up to 5500′ climb, some with optional longer rides. You would use your own bike, which would be transported by Black Sheep’s trucks from San Leandro. We would carpool to the starting point.

There will be a limit of 16 riders. We need a minimum of 8 riders for the trip to go. First come, first serve.

The cost for the 6 day trip would be $1895 double occupancy; $495 single supplement on each. DEADLINE FOR THE $100 DISCOUNT IS June 6

If you are interested, check out the detailed itineraries. Feel free to contact me for further information, and check out the company’s website: info@BlackSheepAdventures.com.
