    The Corona virus has impacted all of us including our cycling plans.

    I wanted to provide an update on some of the more popular organized cycling events that team members have attended in the past; read it and weep:

    Tierra Bella, April 25, cancelled 

    Chico Wildflower, April 25, postponed, no rescheduled date yet

    Wine Country Century, May 2, cancelled

    Sonoma Country Backroads Challenge, May 16, NOT yet cancelled

    Strawberry Fields, May 17, rescheduled for October 11

    Tour of the Unknown Coast, June 6, NOT yet cancelled

    Bike the Bridges, June 14, NOT yet cancelled 

    I will try to update this list as things change.

    Thanks to the current Corona virus situation I have just cancelled all Team rides that were scheduled and posted on the calendar for the month of April.

    Stay safe my friends!

    Team Alameda Board of Directors


    Dear Team Alameda Member:


    We have received advance word of a pending official announcement mandating new restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  These prohibitions, on their own, would make our group rides impractical.  We understand one such edict stipulates a six (6)-foot social distance etiquette.

    With a declared national emergency and understandable concerns already having been raised, the Board was discussing pulling the trigger on our posted rides, when the following article reached us (see embedded link below):

    https://www.sfchronicle.com/local-politics/article/Bay-Area-must-shelter-in-place-Only-15135014.php

    Solo rides would still be permitted, as long as the cyclist respects the 6-foot rule.  Team Alameda rides, on the other hand, are suspended on an indefinite basis, commencing with the ride posted for tomorrow, 17 March 2020.  This also holds true for all events and volunteer activity on behalf of Alameda Bicycle that our club would be involved with.

    We will keep close track of any further restrictions and overall developments, but are anticipating the health crisis to last a fair time before it is resolved to the satisfaction of the politicians and health authorities.  Please be patient, as we are all regrettably constrained in what we can do to ameliorate this deplorable situation.


    Stay in good health,

    Ralph J. Bruni

    President, Team Alameda

    Ride for a Reason is a bike ride to Sacramento to draw attention to the fact that California public schools are underfunded, and to raise funds for enrichment programs in twelve local public schools including Encinal High in Alameda.  This year our goal is to raise $180,000 to support enrichment programs at our beneficiary schools ($15,000 each).  At all of the schools we support, 50 percent-or-more of students qualify for free- or reduced-price lunches.  R4R is the single largest fundraiser for eight of the schools that we support. 

    Choose from 45-, 65-, and 106-mile routes that include five rest stops, a post-ride meal, and support vehicles.  Our mostly flat 45-mile ride is especially kid and new rider-friendly.  The 106-mile ride start in Oakland, the 65-mile ride starts at the Amtrak Station in Suisun City, and the 45-mile rides starts in Vacaville.  All routes finish at the State Capitol in Sacramento.  We provide transportation home (for you and your bike), and also to the starting lines for the 45-mile ride (in Vacaville) and the 65-mile ride (in Suisun City).  Because this is a fundraiser, riders are encouraged (but not required) to raise at least $250. 

    For more information, please go to: http://www.r4rschools.com.  

    Team Alameda encourages it's members to participate in this worthy cause.
