Per google maps, it seems like there are a lot of potential dirt roads/paths between Moraga, Castro Valley, and San Ramon. I've been meaning to check them out, but haven't yet. Not sure which ones are accessible (both technically and legally) to bikes.

Almost all of the East Bay parks fire road trails are bike legal, not much of the single-track is. The main thing is the hills, it's a lot of climbing in the East Bay.
