Take a Ride!

You have that bicycle, so get out and show it off. You'll enjoy some fresh air and make a few new friends at one of these exciting events!

We have a regular (sometimes irregular) Saturday morning ride (usually 9:00 am) from the shop.

Typically, the group is "maturing" persons (male and female) numbering 5 to 10.

We ride 20 miles or longer depending on the wishes of the group. It's always out to lunch and back or out and back to lunch. ALWAYS LUNCH!!!!!

It's always a casual recreational ride. No one EVER gets left behind. We agree on a number of stops to regroup during the ride. The cycling term is "no drop ride."

We have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs.

For those wishing more challenging rides, join us on one or more of the "event" rides listed below. We ride most of these rides. We'll be pleased to clarify the details. These are demanding rides.

For those wishing off-road mountain bike rides, call Danny or Robert Beaman (brothers and skilled staff mountain bike riders) at the shop (925-828-8676) for the next scheduled rides.

IN ALL CASES, call if you plan to join us.


The Death Ride "Second Rush" is this Wednesday, April 16 10:00 am. Go to www.deathride.com and to Registration Page for complete details. You'll learn all the opportunities for getting a "ticket". AGAIN, be on your computer and right ready to go at 10:00 am. The spaces available go IMMEDIATELY. Following "Second Rush", places are available via "Near Death Camp" at Kirkwood, or SERIOUS volunteering in the days prior. Volunteering spaces are very near full. YES!!! in all cases you still pay for your "ticket".

We are doing regular Death Ride training on Sundays. Call Robert Beaman (Senior Staff here) for details - 828-8676. These are serious training rides. You'll need pre conditioning.

Last reminder for the Chico Wildflower Sunday, April 27. Registration will soon fill, and, likely by now, accommodations are gone in Chico. Go to Paradise or Orland. We'll be doing dinner Saturday at the Sierra Brewery. I need to know if you're joining us. They don't take reservations. We get there 5:00 pm to be able to be seated (for a large group) by 6:00 pm.

David Maita (Sunday manager here) does regular Sunday 7:00 am rides (NOT Death Ride training) from the store. Call him here Saturday - 828-8676.

This year, Dublin Cyclery staff will be on a tight budget for century participation. We, so far and fortunately, are WAY out of the ordinary busy. They are coming in out of the sheds and garages in 3's and 4's full of webs, spiders, and thick dust. IT'S GOOD!!!!! Lots of good persons getting back into it.

We will keep you posted on our event participation.
