Grizzly Peak Century Ride

A bit longer than a metric century, the 76 mile course with about 6,000 feet of climbing is the Grizzly Peak Cyclists most popular route. It consists of the North (or morning) loop. From the start at Campolindo High School it climbs the east side of the Oakland-Berkeley hills via Pinehurst Road, then follows the ridge up and over Grizzly Peak and into Tilden Park to the rest stop at Island Picnic Area. It then drops down alongside San Pablo Reservoir and heads north to the edge of the Bay and the Carquinez Strait to the rest stop at Port Costa. From there it climbs McEwen Road for a run down into Franklin Canyon and Alhambra Valley, then over Pig Farm Hill and through the hills around Briones Reservoir to the rest stop at Briones Regional Park. Finally, relatively easy riding on Moraga Way and Moraga Road takes you back to the start for the post-ride meal at mile 76.
