DP Ride Schedule

Delta Pedalers offer bike rides throughout the week.  Some rides occur on a regular weekly basis while others are a one time only ride.   Rides may be local or out of town.  Our “flagship” ride is the Sunday morning ride.  All of our rides are open to non-members and guests.  See our ride schedule below.

Club members have access to the club Yahoo Group (email) list to network with other club members. There is a club events calendar, route sheets and maps for local bay area rides, ride photos, a database to enter club mileage, and more.
