Meet at Palo Alto’s Lytton Plaza at 6 pm for the 16-mile pre-ride there, which includes crossing the Dumbarton Bridge. Bring good lights. Marshlands Road, on the east side of the bridge, is very dark. We’ll also ride back to Palo Alto after East Bay Bike Party, which will end where it starts, Fremont BART Station.
The pre-ride route is 100% paved, almost all of it with bike lanes (except Marshlands Road, which has very little vehicle traffic). Here’s a map, click on it to zoom in.
