This ride starts at Kaiser in Alameda, and we usually make a first stop at the bathrooms at the San Leandro Marina parking lot.
From there we make our way towards the Oakland Zoo; there is short steeper section just after leaving the Zoo parking lot. The zoo parking lot is another assembly point with bathrooms.
After the rolling hills along Skyline Blvd we stop at the trailhead parking lot at the "Richard Tradeau Training Center", and then proceed up the hill. We make our way back through Oakland and end it just after the Park St bridge.
The majority of the ride is "3" in the hills category; the steep section after the zoo is about 10%.
