Overview

The San Francisco East Bay Area offers recreational and competitive cyclists many choices of rides with wide varieties of scenery and terrain, ranging from the Carquinez Strait in the north to Fremont in the south and as far as Brentwood and Livermore in the east, and, west to San Francisco Bay. Carefully planned rides incorporate detailed route instructions, accurate maps and predictable elevation profiles, as well as interesting historical facts and special points of interest for each area.

Climb along the many roads through the scenic Berkeley Hills.
East Bay Bike Trails outlines 27 separate rides and 6 additional ride variations, ranging in length from 9 to 52 miles. Included in these are 8 mountain bike rides in East Bay Regional Parks and Mount Diablo State Park. Difficulty levels range from easy, flat rides over short distances, to long rides with climbs of 2,000 feet or more. Get out your bike, put on your helmet, and enjoy the many experiences awaiting you in the San Francisco East Bay!

Somewhat sheltered from coastal fog and ocean winds, the East Bay is often warmer than other regions in the Bay Area. Extending from the Carquinez Strait south to Fremont, interesting bike routes take you through the heavily wooded and scenic hills above Oakland and Berkeley, orchards and farms around Brentwood, unique and eerie windmills in Livermore, the wetlands around Newark and dramatic Mount Diablo in Danville.
