Bike

Join us on the road! Throughout the year members post and lead their own workouts. It’s a great way to learn new routes and ride in a group. Rides are posted on the calendar for all levels and speeds. Check out all our offerings here and in the calendar to build those
cycling legs!

On this page you can learn more about our spin program, the triple mountain challenge, and bike clinics

Spin | Indoor Cycling Training

These are not your typical spin classes, but rather are a time efficient and effective approach to cycling training, which guarantees fitness and performance gains. This year the club offers indoor cycling training in four locations around SF with three different coaches.

2015 Triple Mountain Observatory Challenge

Reach for the stars with the 2015 Triple Mountain Challenge by summiting Tam, Diablo, and Hamilton, each with an observatory on the top! Complete all three climbs in 2015 and be rewarded with the cheers of your peers (and a groovy SF Tri Club - 3xMt Challenge water bottle). 

For extra credit summit all three in one day using public transit in the alt.ride (https://www.facebook.com/Altride)

Mt Tam - approx. 43 miles; 4000 feet of climbing

Mt. Tam is a familiar sight for many cyclists in the Bay Area, and an epic destination for summer solstice. From the Presidio this is a 43 mile ride with about 4000 feet of climbing. You can do any ride you like on either end, as long as you summit East Peak. Here's a sample ride from Sports Basement. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/5663725

Mt. Diablo - 15+ miles; 3800 feet of climbing

Mt. Diablo climb is a 15-mile out and back from Pleasant Hill BART Station with about 3800 feet of climbing. Heads up to you fog-dwelling SFers, this one and Hamilton get hot, hot, hot in summer. This is handy site about Diablo with road conditions and regular group rides http://www.diablocyclists.org/index.php

There are several longer loop rides, or you can opt to go up and over and back up again for a double Diablo http://sftriclub.org/Resources/Routes/double%20diablo%20from%20pleasant%20hill%20bart.pdf

Whatever you do, just be sure to post a ride that shows you summit. Post a question on the club Google group email if you need some suggestions or want some company on your ride.

Mt. Hamilton - 36-100 miles depending on where you start; 4700 feet of climbing

Mt. Hamilton is the tallest peak in the Bay Area and is a little harder to get to for most, but well worth the trip. The club ride gallery has this century ride turn sheet from Livermore (not far from Dublin/Pleasanton BART): http://sftriclub.org/Resources/Routes/Mount%20hamilton%20from%20Livermore.pdf

Here's a Strava link from someone who did a 90-mile BART to BART ride starting at Dublin/Pleasanton and ending at Fremont: http://www.strava.com/activities/2468227

There are lots of options for making this ride really memorable for scenery and distance. Here are some sites with suggested routes:
