Looking for team and group rides

Hey everyone, I'm new to the Bay area. I moved here from Southern California and am staying at the Outer Richmond area. I'm currently looking for an elite club ride, or any group rides nearby as well as a group that I can maybe race with. I moved about 2 weeks ago and have been exploring different places around this area. I typically enjoy long rides with plentiful of climbing and suffering.

Also, if anybody can pinpoint me if there is a website that lists all available races in Northern California and/or group rides....such as we SoCal riders have @ (https://socalcycling.com/) please do so!

I'm really looking forward to doing some group riding as I've been used to doing group rides almost every day down South. Thanks again!

P.S. here are the two longest rides I've done so far (ended up stopping a lot to ask for directions too):
North: https://connect.garmin.com/activity/41870686
South: https://connect.garmin.com/activity/41999509

PPS: Rides I know so far:
Pen-Velo Rides (Tues, Thurs, Sat, Sun)
GG Park Ride (Tues & Thurs??)
Roaster's Ride (Sat)

He is in SF.
I believe there are weekend rides starting from Java Hat in Fairfax. Probably a closer drive.

Marin is probably closer to get to from the Outer Richmond but driving through town to Fairfax would be no fun.
Shoot down Great Highway to 35 to 280 would get you to the peninsula rides in about the same time.

Aylwin, do you work in SF too?

Yep, I actually work in SF (Presidio) as well. I prefer not to drive to the rides as driving and parking in SF is a pain!

Park ride is Tuesday only, but Chris Phipps is trying to start up a TT Smack down type thing on the Polo Fields Thursday nights.

Port of Oakland (POO) is another good BART-able option on a Tuesday night.
