We have regular rides on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday.
Sundays we meet at 8:45 at the Paddington Cafe in the Montclair Village at at 1952 Mountain Blvd.(next to the Post Office) for a ride up Tunnel Road into the Oakland Hills and beyond. We have “no drop” policy and regroup at several spots along the way, including Sibley Park and the Steam Trains parking lot in Tilden Park. Several riders often continue on through Tilden Park, down Wildcat Cyn road, to San Pablo Dam Rd. We then turn South, cycle to SiSi’s in Moraga for coffee and pastries. The return route is through Canyon and up Pinehurst.
Come early to socialize! Wheels roll at 8:45 am sharp !
Wednesdays the group meets at Starbucks (2084 Mountain) in Montclair, and starts riding at 9am. The Wednesday ride often goes out to Moraga for coffee and pastries, via Redwood Rd and Pinehurst (round trip 22 mi). Many of the Wednesday riders bypass the Moraga stop, and continue on to Orinda, where they stop for coffee and pastries, before returning over the hills via Wildcat. We also plan occasional outlying rides, exploring the fabulous cycling in the Bay Area. Come early to socialize.
Our Saturday ride leaves from the Warehouse at 416 26th, Oakland (between Telegraph and Broadway). This ride starts at 9am, and is a casual ride along the bay, often taking the Bay Trail to Pt. Richmond for a coffee/snack stop. These rides vary from one to several hours, all riders welcome!
Our mission is to promote fitness and a healthy life-style for members through bicycling and the use of bicycles for recreation, exercise, touring and transportation. The Veloraptors club also promotes a positive social environment for quality and lasting friendships among its members.
We’ve been around for 75 million years.
While other dinosaurs ran, we rode bikes. Read more about our group’s history here.
