Lots of bents! Even had most of them out today.

Sorry, wrong Bay, wrong Peninsula.

Google Zack Kaplan. He used to be in Pt. Reyes IIRC, S.F. now?

I just bought a Giro 20TT from Zack yesterday. What a wonderful ride! He is now in Alameda.

Try the Recumbents of the East Bay group on Yahoo. There is a standing group ride every 3rd Sunday, with other rides as proposed by anyone. There is also a Sacramento group on Yahoo, but I do not have the URL for it.

The next ride proposal other than the third Sunday ride is Angel Island on either the 12th or 26th. We've also done around Alameda and out by the airport, and Alameda Creek Trail in Fremont.

The Sacramento group has a first Saturday of the month ride, and also a night (Moonlight) ride.

I haven't heard of any groups on the Peninsula.

Just found this site.
