Berkeley Hills Challenge

Berkeley Hills Challenge Professional Review and Guide

"The Berkeley Hills Challenge is, as suggested by the name, a 33.5-mile-long hilly ride that climbs into the Berkeley Hills, travels along the ridge, plummets down the Hills’ back side, snakes its way back up to the ridge, and eventually descends down the front side to return to the North Oakland Sports Center (NOSC). The route features two loops, connected by a spine that you will ride in two directions. The route passes through two cities, Oakland and Berkeley.

The scenery along the route includes pleasant and interesting residential neighborhoods in Berkeley, the “eastside” of the University of California, Berkeley campus, commanding views of the Bay Area along Grizzly Peak Boulevard, and roadside redwood trees along Pinehurst Road. Berkeley is a highly liberal enclave that continues to be associated with the political unrest and civic upheaval of the 1960s."
