Stockton has a very vibrant biking scene. There's Delta Velo
, a top notch cycling team. Stockton Bicycle Club
& Erma's Diner
are two very good cycling clubs around the area. And there is a very happening Single Speed movement going on.
When daylight savings starts, so do the Tuesday & Wednesday afternoon rides. Tues is w/ DV and Wed is w/ SBC. Both are very lively and spirited. UOP students are more than welcome to join the fun. We have several students on these rides.
Weekends are full of rides ranging flats to the hills. The bike lanes throughout town are virtually non existent. Head west on the MUP from UOP and you make a good training route. Heading east may be a bit sketchy. Head north and soon you will find yourself in the Wine country of Lodi with a lot of empty roads. From this area you can turn a flat ride into a hilly ride as you go up into the foothills.
Every spring, several members of the SBC ride up to Yosemite, so don't listen to anyone that says it can't be done.
