Group Ride in Berkeley on Saturday morning

I will have a free morning in Berkeley on July 28 and will be looking to ride there for 3-4 hours (need to be done around noon). Any recommendations on intermediate group rides and/or places to rent a road bike without paying too much. I was hoping to utilize spinlister but it is no more...

Check out Sports basement in Berkeley for rentals. Grizzly Peak cyclist has some routes if you can't find a group ride.

Even though I did not see your post until Sunday I ended-up doing exactly what you've suggested. Rented CAAD bike in Sports Basement and rode the grizzly peak road plus a few detours from it. Had a great time - started under cloudy sky, rode through the fog and then ended up above the clouds as I was climbing.

I caught a flight from Dallas around super bowl time and sat with a camera man from Charlotte covering the Panthers. He asked about a good place to get shots of the bay area. Told him of the views you get up on Grizzly Peak and Skyline. Glad you enjoyed your ride.
