Det skal I lave

Join me on a bike tour exploring Oakland’s past and present. Our route will lead us to all the must-see sights: City Hall in the heart of Downtown Oakland, charming Old Oakland, trendy Uptown Oakland, historic Jack London Square, and of course, the beautiful jewel of Oakland, Lake Merritt. Don't worry about navigating, I'll take care of that! I’ll also have plenty of recommendations for the rest of your visit.

We'll see colorful street murals, landmark architecture, and Instagram-worthy views. You'll get a sense of the culture, creativity and diversity that make Oaklanders proud.

We’ll stick to pleasant off-street paths, low-traffic streets, and bike lanes on this mostly flat ride.

You have a friend in Oakland. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to do or see, please let me know so I can tailor the ride to your interests and abilities.

NOTE: to use BayWheels bike share you’ll need to purchase a $10 Access Pass. You can continue using this pass for the rest of the day. I will provide helmets for you to borrow. If you have your own bike and helmet feel free to bring them.

This bike tour is a great way to get a feel for the Town. Come check out the sunny side of The Bay and discover that there IS a “there, there.”

Hi, I'm Jean! I've lived and worked in the Bay Area for 18 years and I'm an Airbnb Superhost.

I’m a leader in the transportation field and I run popular bike rides on Meetup.com. Car-free for 20 years, I get around by bike, public transit, and on foot. I love showing people the the nooks and crannies of Oakland and helping people get around without a car.

I have a masters in urban planning and I’m very active in local politics so I’m always happy to chat about that stuff too. I’m excited to show you Oakland by bike!

Fun tour of some Oakland architecture, history, and a lake/estuary, with good stops for photos. I enjoyed the feeling of a “laid-back tour with a friendly local, enabled by bikes” (rather than it being an intense long-distance bike ride).

Jean was a great guide! I really enjoyed my bike ride tour of Oakland. The ride had it all- I got a little exercise in, I learned about Oakland (then and now) and really got a feel for the city. We went through neighborhoods, Lake Merritt and I saw most of the iconic buildings. We were able to stop for pics, which I appreciated. I was introduced to some neighborhoods that I definitely want to go back to explore further. Bonus- we used the bike share bikes and now I feel more comfortable using them again! Maybe even in other cities:-) Jean was very personable and knowledgeable about Oakland and the ride still felt like a ride, not just her spewing facts. We ended in a cute neighborhood and had lunch in the sun! If you want to have a pleasant afternoon in the sun exploring Oakland by bike I would recommend this experience.

Jean was a friendly and helpful host. She showed my friends and I around the Oakland/Emeryville/Temescal areas while making the tour casual and conversational. I recommend this experience for anyone who wants to see a slice of the real Bay Area you won't see at Pier 39, in a chill and engaging setting. If you have your own bike and/or helmet, I would encourage you to bring them.
