Livermore Ride to Wente Vineyards
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED FROM 4/9 TO 4/15
Join us as we embark on a full-day bike riding and wine tasting experience! We'll BART out to Dublin, bike through the beautiful Livermore vineyards, and get a discounted* wine tasting at Wente Vineyards.
*WOBO has secured a special discount for tastings and store purchases, so lock on those panniers for some added cargo on the way back!
-Take your bike on BART and meet us at 10:00am at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station (the last stop on the BART line). If you would like to join us for the BART ride, The WOBO team will gather a crew at the Lake Merritt BART station and leave at 9:20am.
-Bike (roughly 12 miles) out to Wente Vineyards.
-Spend a couple hours tasting and having lunch (bring your own lunch or check out the grill).
-Bike (roughly 11 miles) back to Dublin/Pleasanton BART (arrive between 4:00pm and 5:00pm).
The ride itself is free, but you'll need money to pay for things like a BART ticket, tasting, and anything you wish to purchase. Tastings will be at a special $10 discount for our group, and any purchases will be 15% off.
This is a 23-mile loop (12 miles to the winery, 11 miles back). The elevation gain is minimal, with only a couple very short, mild hills. Most of the biking is on well-paved bike paths, but there are some sections where we will bike on the road shoulders. There are also some narrow sections to be maneuvered.
This ride is for all skill levels, as long as you are comfortable on a bike and riding for long distances. NOBODY GETS DROPPED!
If the forecast calls for rain, we will postpone the ride to Sunday, April 23rd. We will let you know if the ride is postponed.
You must book a spot on Eventbrite. Spots are limited so book early!
