Now is the time of shorter days and darker evening commutes. However, with a little knowledge and the right equipment your night-time bike rides can be safe & fun! Learn how to see and be seen in all conditions, meet and exceed the legal requirements for lights and reflectors, and choose the right lights for the type of bicycling you'll be doing. In addition to a fun presentation from instructor Dan Hernandez, participants will receive free reflective straps and blinkie spoke lights.

Saturdays & Sundays at 8am – A very organic, 80 mile ride, which has been going for a long time – people show up every sat at 8:00 unless its a hurricane – there are always riders there. A really competitive 45 mile ride with 17 miles of preamble and 17 of warm down riding out and back from the bridge.
Location: SF Golden Gate Bridge (south side/south parking lot)
Sundays at 10am – A no-drop, fun and laid-back group ride into the beautiful Berkeley hills. Meet in the Mike’s Bikes parking lot at 9:45, roll out at 10. The route goes up Spruce and part of Grizzly Peak, then back down again. Other route suggestions are always welcome. Speeds will be between 12 and 16mph average depending on the group. Shifting and climbing fundamentals as well as proper road etiquette will be reviewed for anyone interested.
