The course is just a block from Lake Merritt and the 19th Street BART.

The 0.9 mile course is challenging and fast with great pavement, thanks to the Oakland City Government, which is committed to the success of the event. Come out, see the action and stay for the chills and thrills, as racers reach speeds of 35MPH on a closed course.
