This 144-mile ride is a one-of-a-kind experience, traveling through every region of the Bay Area. Meeting on the Second Saturday of September every year and starting at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, riders visit the North Bay, East Bay, South Bay, and Peninsula, and finish back in SF at the Ferry Building.
Please arrive at 6am. We roll out at 630am sharp starting (and ending) at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. There will be group stops at the Oakland Whole Foods, Fremont Lucky’s, Cupertino Whole Foods, and Woodside Robert’s Market.
You don’t have to ride the whole 143 miles! Many people join for only Section One (glorious morning ride – you may decide to continue!) or Section Four (join us for a celebratory well-earned burger and beer at Gott’s Roadside at the SF Ferry Building!). The ride passes several public transit stations, including MacArthur BART (~40 miles), Warm Spring BART (~75 miles), and Santa Clara Caltrain (~90 miles).
This ride is lightly supported, but generally, each rider is responsible carrying for his/her/their own food, water, and gear. While we will have organized stops at the grocery stores listed above where you can use the restroom and buy additional provisions, there are no rest stations. We will have one/a few SAG (Support and Gear) vehicles carrying additional calories, hydration, and cycling gear and which can rescue a rider in distress, should the need arise.
Additionally, it is required that each rider or group of riders be trackable during the duration of the ride. We will be sharing location via xxx and be communicating via WhatsApp throughout the day. Please ensure that these applications are installed and functional on your phone before joining.
All of that being said, we welcome riders of all abilities and experience levels! Please reach out to [email protected] if you have questions.
