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.
