Anyone have any suggestions for rides in Dublin, Ca? I'm going to be there in June, and while I am familiar with the Penninsula, I don't know the Dublin area. Thanks in advance!
I'm not an expert on Dublin, but I've ridden there many times. You didn't say what kind of rides you are looking for, but the easiest suggestion is to take Foothill down thru Pleasanton, into Sunol, then take Niles Canyon Road west until Palomares. Climb up Palomares, then descend the other side. At the bottom, turn right and pick up Dublin Canyon Road, which runs along Hwy 580, back into Dublin. It's a classic loop for people who live out there. Ride it the opposite way and it's a different ride. A good variation is to get on Calaveras Road out of Sunol. Calaveras is one of the best roads to ride in the Bay Area. I would ride it out to the end, then turn around and come back, because the alternative is to ride through Milpitas and Fremont, which isn't all that fun. Another variation is at the end of Palomares, where it hits Dublin Canyon, you ca n work your way into Castro Valley and pick up Redwood Road. This is a pretty good climb into the East Bay hills, and depending on how ambitious you are, you can string together a lot of good roads and do a great loop back to Dublin.pdainsworth said:Anyone have any suggestions for rides in Dublin, Ca?
