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.

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(8-12mph); 10-20 miles – Start time is ALWAYS 9 A.M.

This is a good introductory ride to our club. The group stays together with the faster riders looping around and repeating some sections, usually the climbs, while the slower riders go at their own pace. There is one moderate hill and several lesser climbs in each direction, and an optional difficult climb at the halfway point.

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

Ride 2 – Road-Moderate (12-15 mph); ~35 miles, regroups frequently. – Spring Summer Start time 8 A.M.  Fall/Winter start time 9 A.M. This is a NO-DROP ride!

The ride goes out through Byron to the Los Vaqueros Reservoir and Interpretive Center, and returns through Brentwood.  Great ride for those bridging the gap between the casual ride and the more moderate.  Bring money for coffee and conversation afterward.

Ride Leaders:  Dave Stoeffler: 925-628-2671 and Hans Ho 925-766-8530.
