Hi everyone, I'm brand new to road biking, and I like Palomares a lot. I want to go down Palomares from the north, and then return back up north. Does anyone know a good place to park right off 580?
It look like there is a Dirt shoulder on the west side of the road on Palo Verde Rd, in between the on ramp and Castro Valley Blvd. Will the Police ticket me if I park there?
Thanks for the help.

There is a shopping center a few blocks away you can park at. A local group uses it as their meetup spot. It's a short hill and a little less than 2 miles from the north end of Palomares Rd.
580 Marketplace, 4045 East Castro Valley Boulevard, Castro Valley, CA. (http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid=9260125460599833265&q=580+marketplace+castro+valley&hl=en&sll=37.6951,-122.068291&sspn=0.006295,0.043348&ie=UTF8&ll=37.713702,-122.110634&spn=0,0&z=14)
