My GF and I want to do some bike camping this summer. She has some reservations about the route; I'm too new to the area to know what the options are. Is there a good route from Oakland (Fruitvale area) to the Lake Chabot campground, where good is some combination of not the steepest way, nor the most traffic-heavy, nor via the sketchiest parts of Oakland/San Leandro?
And if there are other campgrounds you can recommend within a few hours' ride, I'd love any suggestions! Thanks!
