Sunday Club Rides – Start at Bagel Street Cafe, Brentwood, Ca.


Sunday Morning Road Rides

All rides start at the Bagel Street Café, 3181 Balfour Rd., Brentwood, CA. Three rides are offered:

Ride 1 – Road-Casual(5-10mph); 10-20 miles – Start time is ALWAYS 9 A.M.

This is a good introductory ride to our club or for riders new to cycling. The group stays together with the faster riders looping around and repeating some sections.  All riders go at their own pace and regroups occasionally.  This is also a great ride for post injury riding or cyclists with riding problems that need some assistance.  Normal route takes you on the Marsh Creek Trail from Brentwood to Oakley and back.  Approximately 20+ miles of flat terrain with some street crossing.  Bring $ for coffee and conversation post ride.

Ride Leaders:  John & Margot Coker: 925-473-8292.

Upcoming Events and Away rides – Keep dates in mind

We have a few out of area rides planned for the next few months and we hope you will join us!  These will be “NO DROP” rides and should be a lot of fun for everyone..

Thanksgiving Day Ride – November 22

The meet up location will be at The Bike Shop (1185-F 2nd Street, Brentwood, CA) parking lot. Meet up time is 8:15am and roll out time is 8:30am. We are looking to have separate A, B and C groups, with A being the more spirited and faster riders (18mph+) for the longest ride of 34 miles, B group for the moderate paced riders (16-18mph) and a distance of 30 miles, and C group for the recovery/leisure (14-16mph) paced rider and shortest of all the rides at 27 miles. That being said, all riders will start at the same time but as the miles pass and the excitement builds, the ride will naturally split among the groups. We will meet and regroup at the Los Vaqueros Dam for the trip back to The Bike Shop for post ride refreshments, compliments of Ron & Kelly, owners of The Bike Shop, Delta Valley Velo and the Delta Pedalers.

We anticipate the ride to be around two hours long and expect to be back at the The Bike Shop around 10:30am or so, in plenty of time for family festivities! And..being that we’ll be back a little on the early side, why not hang out with friends for a few minutes, enjoy a cup of coffee or two and share a few laughs while we’re out and about?

This is an ALL clubs ride so tell a friend or two or three! Come and join us and make this one of, if not, the best local ride of the year!!! It’ll be an absolute blast and you’ll be really glad you came!

As usual, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please post or send me a private email.
