Apr 29, 2017Ride 4 A Reason Oakland/Sacramento,CAJOIN OUR 9TH ANNUAL BIKE RIDE FROM OAKLAND TO THE CAPITOL TO SUPPORT PUBLIC EDUCATION, and raise essential funds for Oakland schools. Last year, 250 students, teachers, parents and community members pedaled from Oakland to the steps of the State Capitol to advocate for greater funding for education and reform in the way that California funds its public schools. Parents, teachers, students, and community members will ride again, April 29, 2017. Many schools in California depend on community fundraising to provide elective classes and enrichment programs — things that used to be thought of as necessary like libraries, art and music, science equipment, sports programs, and low-cost after-school activities. But community fundraising alone can’t do the really deep work needed to fully support all schools, especially in big, urban districts. California teacher salaries remain uncompetitive, and our state’s spending per pupil remains well below the national average.

Jun 17, 2017Terrible Two-Santa Rosa Cycling ClubSebastopol, CAThe route was updated in 2016, on the occasion of rerouting the course to stay out of Napa County. Since the new course description was first made public in March, several experienced TT vets have test ridden variations on the new section, collecting Strava data and subjective impressions. Based on their findings, we have subsequently modified the course to soften the challenge slightly. In spite of replacing the big climb over Trinity with smaller climbs—and in spite of the new course having less elevation gain than the old course—it appears that the new, all-Sonoma section is going to be a bit harder and take more time than the traditional route through Napa County. All else being equal, we're predicting that the new course will take between 15 and 30 minutes longer than the old course. This was not our goal, but these are the roads the real world is giving us.
