Group Ride: Greg Hamel - Lead

The Pergola at Lake Merritt
599 El Embarcadero
Oakland, CA  94610
Group Ride
Registration is not Required
Hello OTC Triathletes,

Is everyone ready to climb this week?!  We will hit the Oakland hills, cruise up skyline, down Pinehurst and come back up Redwood rd.  This is my all-time favorite ride out of Oakland, but if it is your first time back on a bike in a couple years you might want to skip this one.

 Ride: Pinehurst - 25 miles, 2600ft elevation gain

Starting/Ending spot: The Pergola at Lake Merritt

 The ride is posted at Ride with GPS: We will meet at the Pergola at Lake Merritt (In front of the columns), at 9:00am, rolling at 9:15am.  There should be plenty of parking in the area at this time.

It is a no-drop ride, so all levels are welcomed.  We will be able to break into two groups if we have enough riders: fast and mortal.  Bring a bars, Gu or other nutrition on this ride, you will need it. It looks like it might be a little chilly Saturday morning so make sure to wear your winter gear.  

 I have also attached the .gpx file.  If you have a Garmin device you should be able to load this up through Garmin Connect and it will navigate the course for you.  However, this is not necessary and I will also print out cue sheets for everyone.  

 You can email me at or text me with any questions on the ride at: 650-996-3504
