    I usually take off from Heather Farms and take Iron Horse Trail or just follow the canal. I don't do the hill rides quite yet. Too too hot to do anything that is going to take the enjoyment out of the trip. You must be in pretty good shape to handle the hilly areas like that. Where abouts is "The Bears"?

    The Bears are on the northern side of Orinda and Lafayette. They are on Bear Creek Road where the main entrance to Briones Park is. Bear Creek Rd. starts at San Pablo Dam Road on the northern end of Orinda and ends at Alhambra Valley Road. It has 3 hills: Papa Bear, Little Bear, and Mama Bear.

    Papa Bear is the southernmost, Mama the northern one. Little Bear is in between.

    Checking in from Pittsburg, eastern co co county. Commute the Ironhorse and Canal trails from the De Anza trail to Walnut Creek usually one way and hop on Bart the other way. Take a look at Black Diamond Mines in Antioch sometime. Nice road ride up to the park and then the dirt begins.

    Hey Raverson, what kind of riding do you do? Are the paths in Antioch paved?
