Alameda Creek Trail (out and back): 22 miles total, Very light car traffic. This ride is a light duty ride suitable for beginner’s or experienced riders looking for scenic and relaxing ride.
Basically, a sea level (flat) ride. This is a ride suitable for first-timers. So.. . find a friend who wants to start riding and invite them. There will be several somewhat easy rides scheduled in the first few weeks of this season to encourage new riders along with “normal” rides for others. I have a loaner bike if needed.
if any experienced Cycling4Fun riders want to join this simple ride and help herd cats you would be welcome.
