Update August 30, 2016: After meetings today with groups involved with the construction/demolotion of the Bay Bridge, unfortunately based on several factors that are out of our control we had to change the route for the Mini Fondo. This was based on the demolition of the old Bay Bridge that is scheduled to occur on one of the weekends in the end of October. Another factor is that the construction crews are not exactly sure when the east bay Bay Bridge expansion will be complete and connect to the observation deck at Yerba Buena Island. Our plan for riding across the Bay Bridge to the observation deck will be delayed until the 2017 Oakland Gran Fondo.
The New Mini Fondo route offers a unique family friendly route up and around Lake Merritt and will be part of our closure for the other Fondo rides, then you will head out into the Port of Oakland with views of the Bay Bridge and a fully supported stop that will occur in the beautiful Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. You will enjoy views of Lake Merritt, Port of Oakland, New Bay Bridge, SF Bay from the Port of Oakland on this easy ride for the family to enjoy. This ride will not be timed and will include 1 fully supported stop with baked treats and beverages for the whole family.
All routes will be fully supported with escorts and police personnel that will make your ride safe and enjoyable. We have rolling closures through downtown Oakland and motor escorts that will assist on the remainder of each route assisting with traffic control/awareness.
