When cyclists in the East Bay (the communities along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay) want to escape the wall-to-wall sprawl of their cities and suburbs, their ?rst, simplest option is to head for the hills above Berkeley, where tens of thousands of acres of forested ridges and canyons have been bundled together as regional parks, recreation areas, open space preserves, and watersheds. Much of this semi-wilderness is abutted by pleasant rural-residential neighborhoods. Fortunately for cyclists, there is a nice network of mostly quiet roads meandering through the region.
