From our starting point we will ride to Collier Canyon and then to Morgan Territory Road. The climb to Morgan Territory East Bay Regional Park is very steep and much of it is single lane road. It is a strenuous ride up can be dangerous riding back down. The climb and descent is for experienced riders. If you have questions please call the host.

We will stop at Wingen Bakery in Old Town Livermore near the end of the ride. Wingen Bakery specializes in sourdough breads, sandwiches and pastries. In a very short period it has become a downtown Livermore favorite by many people.

Restrooms will be available at the starting/ending location, Morgan Territory East Bay Regional Park (Mile 17), and at Wingen’s Bakery (Mile 28).

The forecast predicts that our midweek heat will be over and it will be mild.

The Morgan Territory region was long occupied by the Miwok Native American Indians. During California’s Spanish and Mexican periods the Native Americans were displaced as the colonial governments gave out large land grants. In the mid-1800s Americans moving westward began to buy the property for ranching. Today the area is named after Jeremiah Morgan who developed a 2000 acre ranch there in 1857.

East Bay Regional Parks acquired ~930 acres in 1975 to establish a preserve. The park is now over 5000 acres.
