O/T? maybe...i need to ride into alameda
i thought this might be the best place to post this topic...posted in the commuter forum as well, but that's a nationwide forum.
my company is moving to alameda from san francisco at the beginning of 2012. i have been scouring the internets for information on the best way to get from san francisco into alameda by bike but have found NOTHING on how to ride into alameda once i leave the lake merrit BART station.
when i was driving a company vehicle on the island today, i saw a cyclist heading eastbound through the posey tunnel but don't see how one would ride westbound through said tunnel. i know that the webster tunnel is closed to cyclists as well.
is there a way to ride into alameda that is close to the lake merrit BART or am i stuck using the hourly BART/alameda "estuary shuttle".
your help is greatly appreciated!
Do you know where on Alameda
your being relocated? the reason i ask is that your riding route (distance) and transit options are different depending on where youll be located. From lake merritt you can travel south on 7th st., past laney college, then make a right on 5th ave., go under 880 and then make a left on embarcadero, right on kennedy then right again on park to the park street bridge. Then travel surface streets to where your employer has relocated on alameda.
Looks like someone already covered riding from fruitvale, the shuttle and taking the ferry. Your other options are reverse AC transit transbay service from SF to alameda using routes W, O and OX. And local ac transit service routes 20, 21, 31 and 51A which connect to various BART stations. All the buses have bike racks but two is the limit.
