    Alternate Routes - SF Bay Area

    Hi.

    I'm looking for some alternate routes for my commute to work. I ride from San Pablo Casino (East SF Bay Area, California), on San Pablo Ave towards Oakland.

    I've been trying to do HIIT training on my bike. Sadly, stoplights and arseholes making right hand turns without turn signals mess my timing up.

    I'm hoping there's an alternate route I can take where I can do HIIT. I typically do 30 second - 2 minute and get up to 28-30 MPH on a flat stretch with my road bike.

    Also, on my way home I'm looking for some nice grades. San Pablo Ave is relatively flat, I'd like a route that has hills, each bigger than the next.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Jason

    EDIT: I welcome a longer ride home. On my way to work I want to get there fairly quick, but on my way home, could take up to 15 miles for all I care.
