The Grizzly Peak Cyclists is a Berkeley based group that hosts about half their rides in the East Bay and the rest are all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Their club includes novices, intermediates, advanced riders with a range of rides that involve socializing and eating as well as a full day of riding.
This cycling group has evolved into a more casual group of road riders, with a focus on riding some of the most challenging and beautiful routes in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are out for a combination of cycling and socializing. They have yellow rides (40-60 miles and 2000-5000 ft elevation gain) and pink rides (20-25 miles) that are at an easy pace and are primarily to be social and fun.
The Valley Spokesmen are a San Francisco Bay Area bicycle club based in Dublin California. They organize local and nonlocal mainly on road rides that range from short neighborhood tours to strenuous century length rides. They have a group within the club called The Feather Pedals that is a no cost cycling group that organizes group rides for women.
This club has more than 900 members covering all ages. Guests are welcome on club rides, unless the ride description specifies for members only. Rides are rated on pace, distance and amount of hills.
