Reputedly the longest point-to-point off-road ride in the East Bay, the 10th annual BADD Ride (Briones to Antioch Dirt Death Ride) will be held on Saturday, June 18. Sponsored by Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay, this grand tour of east bay parks will start at Lafayette BART and end at Pittsburg BART. It will include Briones, Acalanes Ridge, Canal Trail, Shell Ridge, Mt. Diablo, Black Diamond Mines, Contra Loma, and, finally, Delta De Anza Regional Trail. An estimated total of 56 miles (35 miles of dirt, 10 miles of paved bike trails, and 11 miles of pavement, with 8,000 feet of climbing). Obviously this ride is for very fit riders only. There will be lots of stops to look at views, insult each others' equipment, and appreciate the beauty of the East Bay. Ride starts at Lafayette BART at 8:00 a.m. For more information, such as bailout locations and route, food, and drink suggestions, contact ride leader Joe (Ibis) Towbis at [email protected].
