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.

VeloRaptors Invade Treasure Island

On Sunday, November 13, over 30 VeloRaptors pedaled their way through the fog and along the new bike lane on the Eastern span of the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island.  For many riders this was their first time on the island, despite living here for many years.

We circumnavigated the island constantly wondering what sights we were being hidden by the fog, and before long ended up at the Aracely Café where we enjoyed coffee and pastries.  The café includes a sizeable event center, and they were setting up for a luncheon for 300 people.  However, they have an outdoor area, complete with couches, that easily handled our group.

The sun froke through as we headed back to Oakland, and we did enjoy some lovely views.

Paul L. and I  took a few photos.

All in all, a nice 25 mile ride.
