2019 RIDE CALENDAR

PLEASE NOTE: Ride schedule and data subject to change. Please check this page regularly for the most up-to-date ride information. 

All times listed indicate departure ride location start (e.g. Lake Merritt, BART Station or away location specified). For start location of each away location go to Away Ride Start Location page. Rides may be canceled due to inclement weather.

Decide-and-Ride days are off-season rides which range from 30-40 miles in distance with some hilly terrain, depending on the skill level of participating riders. Riders meet at 9:00 AM at the Children’s Fairyland parking lot at Lake Merritt in Oakland on Saturday morning and decide where they want to ride, then depart at 9:20 AM.  Since off-season rides are not official club rides, they do not have formal ride leaders, they do not have formal groupings (light, humane, advanced), and they do not have a no-drop policy.

For more information on ride classifications, visit the ABOUT OYJ page.

If you are not a club member then you will need to bring a signed Liability Waiver to the Ride Leader. 

Individuals under 18 years of age must also have a parent or legal guardian complete and submit the Minor Release Form.


ALL RIDERS MUST HAVE AND WEAR A HELMET.
