Description

Walk Oakland Bike Oakland and Bike East Bay present RiDE LiKE A GiRL, a bicycling skills workshop program designed for every woman who wants to ride. Our goal is getting more folks comfortable and confident on their bicycles, and feeling more connected with a community of people who want to bike!

This year we are returning to Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, CA. WOBO and Bike East Bay are organizing three different rides to choose from. The shortest and most family friendly route will be 6.5 miles along the Alameda Creek trail. For those more comfortable biking but new to carrying camping gear ride from Oakland via the Bay trail. For those who are ready to tackle hills with their camping gear ride from Oakland via a hilly route.

Prior bike camping (or camping) experience is not required.

You should be comfortable riding as a group, and confident biking the distance you chose while carrying weight. You are responsible for your own food and we will lead a 2 mile trip to the grocery store near the campsite in case you need to get anything else. Water and toilets are available at the campsite.

To best prepare yourself and your bike for the trip, join us for a pre-trip meeting! Attendance at one meeting is mandatory. At the meetings, you will have a chance to meet others on the trip, learn helpful tips for bike camping, and discover ideas for packing your gear on your bike. Meetings will be about 1.5 hours.

  • Tuesday, June 11, 6:00pm in Oakland.

  • Wednesday, June 12 at 5:30pm in Fremont.

  • Monday, June 17, 6:30 pm in Berkeley.

You can bring your bike to the meeting to get support in setting up your gear.

Register online now or when you attend one of the pre-trip meetings. Suggested donation is $15 per participant to cover campground fees and safety supplies. Feeling generous? Register as a steward of s’mores and give $30 to cover the costs of yourself and a fellow camper.

When you register, you will be required to provide an emergency contact. Please list someone who will be in the area the weekend of the ride and who will be able to assist you in any situation that may cause you to leave the trip. Volunteers will have basic first aid kits and bike tools, but will not be able to handle major ailments or mechanical issues.

**This ride is open to all women, trans and femme folks who want to join. Any children or youth under 18 are welcome to join with a guardian**
