Veloraptors Cycling Club – Oakland (Montclair), California.
Weekly bike rides and various ongoing social get togethers.
Sundays we meet at the Nelly’s Java (Organic Coffee & Tea) in the Montclair Village at at 1952 Mountain Blvd.(next to the Post Office) for a ride up 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 through Orinda and stop for coffee and pastries in Moraga. The return route is through Canyon and up Pinehurst.
Come early to socialize! Wheels roll at 8:30 am sharp !
Wednesdays a casual and smaller group, also meets at Nelly’s Java and we start riding at around 8:30 am. The Wednesday ride often goes out to Moraga for coffee and pastries, via Redwood Rd and Pinehurst.There are occasional outlying rides as well. Come early to socialize.
On Saturdays a group rides from the Warehouse at 416 26th, Oakland (between Telegraph and Broadway). This ride starts at 8:45am and often traverses the Bay Trail north to Pt. Richmond. All riders are welcome!
